Hood River County Health Department greatly appreciates all the cooperation from our community!
Contract tracers have been speaking to patients daily and our community partners have been extremely helpful.
Stay positive and keep up the great work of supporting each other. Don’t forget to wash your hands!
Please avoid gathering groups for the holidays. We saw a significant increase in cases
after Memorial Day and hope to avoid a similar trend after Father’s Day and the 4th of July.
Gathering with those you don't live with, group meetings and activities are discouraged.
Many of our local cases were connected through gatherings outside the work setting.
We ask that all visitors and community members wear a face covering when you're
unlikely to maintain physical distancing of at least six feet.
If you are in public and cannot maintain a 6 foot physical distancing, you should be wearing a mask!
Mouth and nose areas are primary entry points for Coronavirus and other infections.
Wash hands before brushing your teeth. Wash hands—and then brush, floss, and then wash face and hands.
Practice social distancing when brushing your teeth. Bacteria from your mouth enter the air as you brush your teeth. Stand six feet from others as you brush.
Rinse toothbrush in hot water for 20 seconds after each use.
Just like people, keep toothbrushes away from one another.
Do not share toothpaste or floss. We know that we can carry the virus five days before showing symptoms.
If you share an electric toothbrush or electric water flosser, then wipe the handle before and after each use. Alternatively, you can use a plastic bag over the handle.
If you get sick, replace your Toothbrush
