At the Board of County Commissioner's meeting held on Wednesday, July 8, 2020, Health Director, Dr. Eugenia Seidel, made a presentation containing important information related to COVID-19. Her presentation included a demonstration on how to utilize the Health Department's dashboard to locate a variety of things including cases by State, County and Zip Code, cases by age, cases in care facilities, hospitalizations, results of COVID testing, deaths, etc. The information is updated on this site daily at 11am and can be accessed by anyone, anytime.
Dr. Seidel also covered frequently asked questions and misinformation related to contact tracing, increase in cases by percentages, monitoring of active cases, effectiveness of face coverings, and rapid result testing. She also discussed different types of anti-body cases, their accuracy and which antibody tests are counted as a case when positive (not all antibody tests are counted because some are not as accurate for various reasons in which she explains).
We encourage all residents to watch this informative presentation to gain ACCURATE information. The video can be accessed here.
