Submitted by on August 13, 2020 – 3:56 pmNo Comment

PRESS RELEASE FROM DISTRICT HEALTH DEPARTMENT NO.4:

Are you or is someone close to you sick or has COVID-19 symptoms? Do you work outside the home? Did you recently travel or had people travel to visit you? Did you attend a gathering with people outside of your family? You should get tested for COVID-19.

COVID-19 testing is one way we can help stop the spread of the virus; especially for those asymptomatic people.

Testing leads to quick identification of cases and immediate isolation to prevent spread. Early testing also helps to identify anyone who came into contact with infected people.
