In the latest update from Grays Harbor Public Health, they announced that Grays Harbor now has 11 confirmed case of COVID-19.
Three additional cases of COVID-19 were diagnosed on April 10. Public Health staff have reviewed the cases and notified close contacts.
In their update they say;
Grays Harbor Public Health advises that Grays Harbor County residents should do their part by following Governor Jay Inslee’s Stay Home, Stay Healthy order.
They also gave additional recommendations;
Residents should wear a cloth face cover when they have to go out in public, for example to the grocery store or to pick up other necessities, and cannot maintain 6 feet of physical distance from others. This recommendation is not a substitute for existing guidance to maintain 6-feet of physical distance from non-household members and performing frequent hand hygiene with soap and water or alcohol-based hand sanitizer. Wearing cloth face coverings will not prevent spread of COVID-19 without these other protective measures. This is not a mandate that you must wear a face covering. It is considered an additional layer of protection.
If you have a regular healthcare provider, call your provider.
