Should residents be concerned about COVID-19?

COVID-19 is a serious threat to public health, but everyone can do their part to help:

  • Stay home as much as possible. People over 60 and those with health concerns should be especially vigilant about staying away from other people.
  • If you do have to leave home, such as for groceries or medication, do so during off-hours so there are fewer people out, and send only one person per household. Maintain a distance of 6 feet between yourself and other individuals in public.
  • Practice good health habits that help your immune system work effectively:
    • Get appropriate sleep.
    • Stay physically active.
    • Manage stress.
    • Drink plenty of fluids.
    • Eat nutritiously.
    • Wash your hands with soap and warm water.
  • Keep on hand at least a two-week supply of food, as well as prescription and nonprescription drugs. While it is always good to ensure your 72-hour kits are stocked, it is not necessary to purchase water or most other emergency supplies in response to COVID-19; this is not a natural disaster and our utility systems, including water and electricity, will continue to function normally during the outbreak.
