Oneida County Health Department to increase community awareness of COVID-19

In an effort to keep community members up to date on COVID-19, the Oneida County Health Department (OCHD) will update its Facebook page daily, Monday - Friday, with current COVID-19 case counts. This will include the number of individuals tested in Oneida County, negative test results, pending test results, as well as any positive test results, should any be received, according to a press release. At this time, there are no positive COVID-19 cases in Oneida County.

Additionally, OCHD will do a daily, Monday - Friday, Facebook post on the most recent travel restrictions to help notify community members if they need to self-quarantine due to traveling to an area with community transmission.

To help prevent illness and avoid exposure to this virus community members can:

• Avoid social gatherings with people of all ages (including playdates and sleepovers, parties, large family dinners, visitors in your home, and non-essential workers in your house)

• Wash hands with soap and water frequently

• Cover coughs and sneezes

• Avoid touching your face

• Stay home if sick

This is a rapidly evolving situation. To read the latest information about COVID-19, check the OCHD website (oneidacountypublichealth.org), the Department of Health Services (DHS) website (https://www.dhs.wisconsin.gov/covid-19/index.htm) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) website (https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/index.html).
