                                                                                    Public Health restrictions during COVID-19.  

                                                                                    These measures are intended to stem the spread of

COVID.  We are lucky to be in a remote area with less access to larger populations, to reduce our risk.

Our County is following state and federal guidelines for social distancing and urge you to do the same

to help prevent the spread of the virus in our community.

What you can do

 Older adults and people with underlying conditions, please:

  • Minimize contact with people.

  • Avoid public gatherings of 10 people or more.

  • Order prescriptions by mail.

  • Wash your hands frequently

  • Don’t touch your face

  • Sanitize frequently touched surfaces.

  Everyone should:

  • Wear face coverings around people you don't live with

  • Maintain 6 foot distancing between you and those you                                                                                  don't live with (social distancing)

  • Wash hands with soap and water frequently

  • Cover your cough

  • Stay at home when you are ill.

  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose & mouth with your hands

  • Avoid contact with sick people.

  • Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or sleeve

  • when coughing or sneezing.

  • Don't visit loved ones in care facilities, call them instead.

      Coronavirus symptoms:

  • Flu-like symptoms (fever, cough, and difficulty breathing)                                                                           may appear in 2 to 14 days after exposure to the virus.

  • If you have severe symptoms, like difficulty breathing, call 911.

  • Illness symptoms range from mild (like a common cold) to                                                                    severe pneumonia requiring hospitalization.

  • Most people will recover without medical attention.

  • If you are ill, call your healthcare provider before you visit their office.
