With coronavirus cases and hospital admissions increasing here, county leaders emphasize the need for all residents and businesses to get a renewed focus on wearing masks, maintaining social distance and other measures that help limit the spread of the virus.
“We all need to do our part to limit the spread of coronavirus and reduce the number of new cases we see,” said county commission chairman Marilyn Kirkpatrick, “and this is especially important for those who own and run businesses. Our business needs to be vigilant. If we do not manage to limit the spread of the virus, our cases and hospitalizations will continue to increase, which may force us to roll back some of the openings and overwhelm our healthcare system. “
“The county’s personnel licensing staff has seen increasing compliance from businesses and the public, but we need to be as close to perfect as possible,” said Kirkpatrick President. “We are all in this together. Companies and residents are partners in our work to keep our society and our economy open.”
The focus on reducing the transmission of coronaviruses is a renewed emphasis on the measures that prevent people from transmitting the virus to others, even if the infected person is asymptomatic, and on catching the virus from others.
Recommended measures to limit the spread of the virus include:
• Wear a face covering in public places and when living in people from other households.
• Wash your hands frequently.
• Clean and disinfect items that are often affected, e.g. your mobile phone, door handles and countertops.
• Keep at least 6 feet of social distance between others.
The latest increase in the number of cases of coronavirus and hospital admissions began in late June. As of this morning, Clark County has seen 19,654 coronavirus cases, including 836 new cases reported today.
