COMMUNITY SAFTEY UPDATES

We are here to help everyone with this transition to a new way of working and socializing in our communities. To prevent the spread of this COVID-19, or other illnesses including the flu, here are some good practices we should all be following:

Conduct Social Distancing.

Social distancing is deliberately increasing the physical space between people to avoid spreading illness. Examples of social distancing that allow you to avoid crowds and crowded spaces are:  staying at least six feet away from other people, working from home instead of the office, switching to online classes, visiting with loved ones by electronic devices instead of in person, cancelling or postponing conferences, large meetings, or gatherings of more than 10 people.

Wash, Wash, Wash your hands.

Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. To ensure you wash for right amount of time, sing a song in your head such as twinkle twinkle little star. For a list of more songs you can sing visit this website.

 

Cover your mouth and nose when you cough or sneeze.

Use a tissue or your arm to cover your mouth or nose and not your hands.

Stay home when you’re sick.

If you get sick, and have flu-like symptoms (such as fever, coughing, sore throat or runny nose), call your doctor before seeking in-person medical care unless you are experiencing severe shortness of breath and/or are struggling to breathe. If you get sick, you can also call the COVID-19 Hotline at: 307-755-4750.

Telemedicine is now covered by Medicaid. To learn more visit their website.
