It is our responsibility to take steps to suppress COVID-19 in our community and interact with our environment carefully. If someone is sick or thinks they may be sick, they need to stay home. We all need to practice physical distancing, proper hand hygiene and wear a face covering whenever possible. For information on how to properly wear a face covering and when to wear one, click here.

A timeline of all known potential community exposures in the last 14 days is available here.

49 new positive COVID-19 cases were reported by the Health Department today, bringing the total number of laboratory-confirmed cases to 553.

  • Fatigue
  • Muscle or body aches
  • Headache
