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.
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.
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.
