PRESS RELEASES


Though COVID-19 is a new (novel) coronavirus, disease outbreaks are not new territory in public health, and Central District Health has response plans, relationships and agreements in place within our jurisdiction to respond accordingly. A big part of that is working with community partners – from county emergency managers, to area hospitals, law enforcement, first responders, local and state public health, our year-round relationships and planning for potential outbreaks are critical in times like this, where an outbreak can rapidly change direction. Public health officials want people to be aware so they can take appropriate precautions.

We are asking people to follow steps they may already be taking for flu – stay home if you’re sick, avoid sick people, and cover your coughs and sneezes with your elbow or a tissue (not your hands). Wash your hands frequently, especially after you have been in the public and touched door handles, stair railings, money, grocery carts, elevator buttons, and other items that lots of other people may also have touched.
