As travel increases throughout the summer, we expect to see more positive cases come into the community. Please continue to be vigilant and practice all appropriate hygiene and distancing recommendations. Your hard work protects you, your family, and your community.
Below is the current confirmed case count:
Sheridan County Residents:
Lab Confirmed Positive: 40
- 10 active COVID-19 cases
A small number of the positives have been identified in the food service industry. Those positives are limited to staff exposures and no members of the general public have been found to be at risk of transmission because of their patronage of the businesses. The infection control measures including masks, limited contact, distancing, sanitization, and hand hygiene implemented by the food service businesses have been effective at limiting the risk of transmission of the virus. We would like to thank Frackletons for their extremely helpful and timely response to the public health incident.
Non-Sheridan County Residents tested in Sheridan:
Lab Confirmed Positive:11
The public is encouraged to follow these guidelines outlined by the CDC and WDH:
- Avoid close contact (within 6 feet) with anyone outside of your household.
- Wear cloth face coverings when out in the public.
- Stay home if sick (but if you are concerned it may be more than just a cold, please consult your physician).
- Avoid gatherings of 50 or more people.
- Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe.
- Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol. Always wash hands with soap and water if hands are visibly dirty.
