  1. Important COVID-19 MessagesMedical Home-it is important to have a regular source of health care. Healthcare professionals can assist in providing guidance on testing (COVID-19 vs. antibody testing). Seeking this care and regular health care are important in protecting health.
  2. COVID 19 testing: Testing IS available. All are encouraged to be tested. The testing locals are not working at capacity. There are many asymptomatic persons testing positive. Testing can protect you from sharing the virus with others.
  3. Testing will be needed until there is a treatment or a vaccine.
  4. Contact tracing is important to preventing the spread of the virus. If you receive a call that you may have been in contact with someone who has tested positive for Covid 19, or that you have tested positive, please answer the call and share information about your contacts so they can be protected.
  5. Prevention works. Continue wearing masks, social distancing and all other preventive measures.
  6. Get a flu shot this fall. There will be two respiratory illnesses, flu and COVID 19. The flu shot helps protect against the flu.
