Chickasaw County Public Health has announced that the 2 cases of COVID-19 have recovered and are released from Public Health monitoring. Additionally, there are no new cases in the county.
“We encourage people to get the facts, rather than spread fear,” said Chickasaw County Public Health Director Lisa Welter. “I would advise people to go to the coronavirus.iowa.gov website for the most accurate and up to date information. The site is a one stop shop for all information pertaining to COVID-19 in Iowa. The interactive map shows testing stats, the Governor’s Proclamations are there for viewing, and the processes for various types of assistance are all easy to access from the page.”
Symptoms of COVID-19 include cough, fever (100.4 or greater) and shortness of breath. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, you should call your health care provider before going into the clinic or hospital. The provider may have special instructions for you and will determine if you should be tested.
All residents should:
- Staying home when ill (the kind of illness that normally wouldn’t prevent you from your everyday activities).
- Covering coughs and sneezes with a tissue or elbow/upper arm.
- Washing hands frequently with soap and water for at least 20 seconds each time.
