Coronavirus News & Updates:  We’re all in this together

Today, we know more about who is at greater risk of getting the coronavirus than we did a few months earlier.  We know that people over the age of 60 and those with underlying health conditions are particularly vulnerable to the more severe effects of the disease.  Although younger, healthier children and adults may suffer only minor symptoms, they can still spread the coronavirus to the more vulnerable population.

The Moultrie County Health Department wants you to live smart and responsibly until we’re through this pandemic.  So, let’s wash our hands longer and more frequently.  Avoid large gatherings of people.  Reduce unnecessary physical contact with others as much as possible.  Above all, let’s listen to public health experts and act on the basis of facts instead of misinformation.  Thus, we encourage you to check the Coronavirus News & Updates for the latest information each day.
