Answers to COVID-19 questions given Tuesday
Reno County Emergency Management

Reno County Emergency Management released an update Tuesday evening answering some questions people have been asking about the COVID-19 situation.

As of that release, there were still only two confirmed positive COVID-19 cases in Reno County. It's important to note that tests are only being given to those who meet certain transmission criteria or who need to be hospitalized.

Reno County is not on a stay at home order right now. What is still being asked is to practice social distancing. This means to not be out in large groups, only go out to public venues when you need to and come up with greetings that do not require physical contact.

Also maintain a six foot radius around you and other people when you are out in public. It's okay to go outside and talk a walk. A friend can even go with you, but keep the six foot space between you and your friend.

Group gatherings are restricted to ten people or less because this can slow the spread of COVID-19 and not overload the healthcare system.

It's important that everyone stay home as much as possible to help protect those who are at high risk from contracting COVID-19. It is possible for a person to have COVID-19 and have very mild symptoms. During this time someone who is infected is able to spread the virus to other people. Those people may have underlying health issues and may suffer severe symptoms that could result in death.

Continue to call the health department with your questions. They have set up a hotline number open Monday-Friday 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. The number to call is (844) 834-3658.
