Delaware County Public Health says with the recent increase in cases and the school year coming up in just a few weeks, it’s important for the community to follow guidelines to prevent the spread of the coronavirus. Public Health Coordinator Charity Loecke has some reminders:
And with 94 confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Delaware County since April, some of you may have been asked to quarantine after being exposed to someone who tested positive. Loecke says you are considered to have been in close contact with someone if you were within six feet of that person for more than fifteen minutes.
And for those who test positive for COVID-19, there are specific guidelines they are asked to follow.
In addition to keeping up with the cases and conducting contact tracing, Delaware County Public Health has also been working with the schools on their Return to Learn plans.
Delaware County Public Health will continue releasing the case counts, but only three times a week on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. If you have any questions about COVID-19 or a specific situation, you’re welcome to contact Delaware County Public Health.
