Governor Parson announced on Thursday June 11, 2020 he will enter into Phase II by reopening the state on June 16, 2020. The Daviess County Health Department in conference with  David Roll, Emergency Management Director, and Jim Ruse, Presiding Commissioner, will follow the governor’s recommendations/guidance for reopening. However, we at the health department encourage everyone to take precautions and evaluate their own risks and the situations that lead to increased risks. We will continue to encourage social distancing, monitoring your own health, wearing mask if you are ill or working closely with someone, washing hands frequently and disinfecting highly touched areas.

 

Long term care facilities will have new guidance come out next week to outline the strategies for reopening.

 

 Please respect those businesses and entities that choose to protect those they serve.

Businesses have an obligation both socially and legally to protect their employees and customers by taking reasonable steps to prevent the spread of illness within their facilities. Appropriate methods have already been implemented by most businesses, and should be maintained until the threat associated with illness has been removed.

 

Covid-19 is not gone and the state will continue to increase testing. Currently Daviess County Health Department has investigated a total of 7 positive Covid-19 cases with 3 cases still open and 4 recovered.

Important Facts about COVID-19

#1: It’s a virus.  Most common symptoms are: loss of taste and/or smell, cough, fever, body aches, and general weakness or fatigue.

#2: If you are sick, no matter what virus you may have, you should stay home to prevent spreading it to others.

#3: Call the doctor or your local emergency room if you are having any breathing difficulties—DO NOT just show up at your doctor’s office or ER without talking to them FIRST!!

#4: Local health departments are not providing testing, treatment or screenings—these must all be done by a doctor.

COVID-19 Info

In light of the ongoing coverage of this particular virus, we need to keep in mind a few things:

  • COVID-19 has a whole range of severity—not everyone who gets COVID-19 has a serious illness and many have an uncomplicated recovery

  • COVID-19 can become a serious issue for certain people in our population—the elderly and those with other health conditions. Limiting time out and about is totally appropriate for these groups.

  • COVID-19 only becomes a serious health issue when it causes breathing problems—again, not everyone gets very ill with this virus (as is true with all viruses), so if you develop breathing problems, this would be a reason to contact your doctor or an emergency room (call first).

  • COVID-19 transmission can be greatly reduced by doing the same things we’ve always recommended you do to keep from getting the seasonal flu: don’t stand close to other people, wash your hands, cover your cough, don’t touch your face, and if you’re sick please stay home.

What about cleaning?

Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces with bleach solution (1/4 cup bleach + 4 cups water) or 70% rubbing alcohol.  If using bleach solution, the bleach begins to degrade quickly so you will need to make a new batch each time.  Don’t forget to disinfect doorknobs, light switches and phone receivers.
