WHAT SHOULD OUR COMMUNITY DO AT THIS TIME?
- As the virus becomes more community-spread around the country and state, the community should be taking precautions to identify those who are at risk of infection or may already be infected (Click here, Other Frequently Asked Questions, to see information about symptoms and when to call your physician). We recommend if someone is experiencing these symptoms to call their physician before going to the hospital or urgent care center.
- We should all take prudent steps to prevent the spread of this and many other viruses, like hand washing, use of hand sanitizer, coughing etiquette, staying home from work and public events when sick. For more information on ways to prevent the spread of COVID-19, please visit this website https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/prepare/prevention.html
- We will all follow state and federal guidance as the situation evolves and as local circumstances change.
- Our 228-CARE line now has a live person available to answer your COVID-19 questions.
