Please follow the guidelines below to help us keep our community healthy and safe.
Residents are encouraged to follow these measures to “flatten the curve,” and reduce transmissions in our area:
- Practice social distancing and maintain at least six feet of distance between yourself and anyone else.
- Wash your hands regularly with soap and water for at least 20 seconds
Stay home if you have been in contact with someone diagnosed with the coronavirus or if you have the following new or out of the norm symptoms:
- Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
- Chills or shivering
- Muscle or body aches
- Sore throat
- New loss of taste or smell
- Ringing in ear or temporary loss of hearing
- Fatigue or feeling more tired than normal
Unless these symptoms get worse or last for several weeks: stay home, drink fluids, and use over the counter medications to help relieve symptoms.
Call your doctor if you have these symptoms:
- Shortness of breath but still able to speak in full sentences.
- If symptoms continue to get worse or last more than two weeks.
Prepare for this by knowing your doctor’s phone number and after hours line. Investigate if you have access through a 24 hour call-a-nurse line through your health insurance or a local clinic.
Call 9-1-1 if you are experiencing these symptoms:
- Chest pain/pressure
- Severe shortness of breath – only able to say a word or two before taking a breath
- Passing out, losing consciousness, or confusion
These are severe symptoms that need medical attention right away. Tell 9-1-1 all the symptoms you are experiencing and if you have traveled recently.
