A note from our Health Director, Diane Creek:
I’m sure most of you have heard that we have our 5th case in Mitchell County. So far Avery and Yancey have zero positives but that could definitely be a deceptive figure. There is a very real possibility that people who are positive aren’t meeting testing criteria so they are being sent home to self-isolate. Please don’t let your guard down when you go to the grocery store, get gas, or do any other essential errands.

• Stay at home, especially when you’re sick
• Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth
• Wash your hands often
• Cover your cough and/or sneeze
• Clean and disinfect touch surfaces often
