As we continue to work to control the outbreak of the Novel Coronavirus Disease 2019, known as COVID-19, you can stay up-to-date here on this page on the latest information regarding the disease and available resources to help mitigate the health and economic impacts of this pandemic. The links below include information about the disease, preventative measures, and helpful resources on travel and available assistance such as loans.

It’s important to remember that all issues impacting public health should be taken seriously, and only reliable sources should be trusted. Throughout this process, I encourage everyone to seek out reputable sources. We all must work to ensure that we are spreading facts, not fear.  

COVID-19 Stop the Spread of Germs

What the public can do to prepare?

  • As of March 15, the CDC, in accordance with its guidance for large events and mass gatherings, recommends that for the next 8 weeks, organizers (whether groups or individuals) cancel or postpone in-person events that consist of 50 people or more throughout the United States. Read full recommendation.
  • For organizations that serve people who are at higher risk of serious COVID-19 illness, the CDC recommends canceling events for groups of 10 people or more.
  • The best way to prevent the transmission of respiratory infections, including COVID-19, is by practicing good hygiene.
    • Wash hands frequently, ideally with soap and warm water for 20 seconds.
    • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
    • Avoid close contact with sick persons (keep a distance of at least 6 feet).
    • Clean surfaces with an EPA-registered low/intermediate level disinfectant; use gloves and wash hands after cleaning.

If you are sick, cover your coughs/sneezes, self-isolate, and contact your health care provider.
