County Officials are working to stop the spread of COVID-19. Public Health encourages all of us to focus on prevention activities. We can all do our part to keep our community safer and slow the spread of COVID-19 by adhering to these prevention activities:

  • Practice social distancing by staying at least 6 feet away from other people
  • Wash your hands regularly for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol
  • Wear cloth face coverings in public settings and when around people who don’t live in your household or when other social distancing measures are difficult to maintain
  • Avoid touching your face, eyes, and mouth when in public
  • Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when you cough or sneeze or use the inside of your elbow
  • Clean frequently touched surfaces and objects daily (for example, tables, countertops, light switches, doorknobs, and cabinet handles)
  • Stay home when you are sick, except to get medical care
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick
