Warren County continues to have community transmission of the COVID-19 virus. This means that it is possible for individuals to become infected with the virus while out in the community even if they cannot determine a source of exposure. It is important for people to continue to limit travel for only essential reasons including to get food, medication, or medical care or to get to and from work. People should continue to avoid gatherings of any size for any reason since some people can be infected with COVID-19 but not show signs or symptoms.
The availability of COVID-19 testing in Warren County has increased but still remains limited. Therefore, Warren County Public Health is encouraging individuals that have COVID-19 symptoms (including fever, dry cough, shortness of breath) to contact their healthcare provider to see about the possibility of getting tested for the virus. Also anyone who is having more severe COVID-19 symptoms should call ahead before going to the hospital or their healthcare provider. If an individual is not able to contact their healthcare provider about getting tested for COVID-19 that person is encouraged to contact their local health department for information.As with any illness, there are certain practices we each can follow to protect ourselves from the spread of illness, this includes;
Social Distancing - this means distancing yourself while you are sick from individuals, or also distancing yourself from individuals who are sick.
This includes items such as staying home from work or school while ill.
Proper hand washing - hand washing is crucial in helping stop the spread of many illnesses. Hands should be washed often with soap and warm water for at least 20 seconds or clean your hands with an alcohol-based hand sanitizer, covering all surfaces of your hands (and in-between your fingers) and rubbing them together until they feel dry.
Respiratory Etiquette - Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or your sleeve when you cough or sneeze. Throw used tissues immediately in a lined trash can and wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds or clean your hands with an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
