Delaware Co. Residents Recently Out of State Reminded to Self-Isolate

Delaware County residents are continuing to follow social distancing guidelines during the COVID-19 outbreak – and Delaware County Public Health Nurse Charity Loecke encourages everyone to keep it up.

For those of you who have been out of the state at any time during the past two weeks, you are being asked to self-isolate as a precaution.

Testing for COVID-19 remains limited in the state, so if you’re experiencing mild cold or flu-like symptoms, you are urged to stay home and self-isolate.

If your symptoms are more severe – such as shortness of breath or chest pain – you are urged to contact your healthcare provider. Regional Medical Center CEO Charlie Button says they are working on providing telehealth services and hope to roll that out in the near future.

Button says Regional Medical Center is also working to cut down on the amount of people in their hospital in an effort to keep everyone safe.

He says he really appreciates everyone’s support and cooperation during this time.
