9th Health Order Extended

The 9th Amended Public Health Order was extended until June 8th. This allows some time for feedback from the community on our proposed long term order. We are also working towards alignment regionally and possibly at a state level.

Long Term Health Order

Today in a public facing meeting, Joni Reynolds presented a framework for a potential long term public health order. This framework would have 5 levels of restriction that could be adjusted based on the current risk level in the community.

The presentation can be found here.

The meeting was recorded and can be found here.

Antibody Test

We should have our antibody test results posted to our By the Numbers dashboard by the end of the week. As of today, we have tested a total of 698 individuals with 191 showing a positive result for antibodies.

GVH Pre-surgery screening

GVH is offering COVID-19 PCR test screening for anyone that is coming to get a medical procedure. For scheduling please see this document from GVH. 

Importance of Self-Reporting

One of the best tools to provide early warnings of spread in the community is to self-report as symptomatic. If you have symptoms consistent with COVID-19, even if they are mild, please self-report and isolate yourself.
