Sheridan County COVID-19
Negative Test Results-621 (Other tests pending)
While the Sheridan County IMT has been planning for an ease into lighter restrictions, direction from the state level has only been in general terms. The state’s current health orders are still in effect through April 30, 2020, and no variances are being considered locally within those orders.
As soon as the state releases its amended orders and further guidance, Sheridan County Public Health and County Health Officer Dr. Ian Hunter will carefully review and evaluate the need for any variances within Sheridan County.
The Sheridan County IMT would like to thank all of the residents of Sheridan County for following the statewide orders and recommendations from CDC, WDH, and County Health Officer, Dr. Hunter.
“Your efforts and sacrifices have helped slow the spread of the virus here in Sheridan County,” Dr. Hunter said referring to Sheridan County residents. “We need to stay vigilant and continue to follow recommended guidelines and state orders. This will help prevent a spike in more cases during the reopening phase of these ever-changing times.”
The public is encouraged to follow these guidelines outlined by the CDC and WDH:
- Avoid close contact (within 6 feet) with those who are sick or may have been exposed.
- 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 10 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.
