The Health Department has partnered with local, state and federal response agencies to ensure a level of preparedness for the community. The virus that causes COVID-19 is transmitted similar to the virus that causes influenza. We encourage everyone to practice good respiratory hygiene, which includes: proper handwashing, covering your cough, and staying home if you are ill.
