Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

Monitoring the situation closely

Here at City-County Health Department (CCHD), we are closely monitoring the health of our community, and we realize that the recent spike in case numbers may cause our community some anxiety. We urge you to take control of your own physical health and mental well-being by doing what you can to protect yourself and those you love. Here are things you can do:

  • Avoid close contact with people outside of your household (close contact is being within six feet of someone for 15 minutes or more)
  • Clean and disinfect high-touch surfaces regularly
  • Frequently, thoroughly wash your hands and avoid touching your face
  • Get some physical activity and enjoy the sunshine and fresh air, but watch out for trailheads or parks that are already crowded
  • Stay in contact with your friends and family, even if you aren't seeing them in person as much as you'd like
  • Use good judgment and analyze the risk of your activities before going out (whether that's grocery shopping at peak times, going on vacation, or going to a friend's or family's gathering)
  • Wear a mask or face-covering in public indoor spaces and at outdoor gatherings where social distancing is difficult, as mandated by the Governor's Directive. As of Weds, 3/17/21, masks are not mandated, but they are still recommended.
