April 16, 2020 Callaway County COVID-19 Update

The Callaway County Health Department has no new positive COVID-19 cases to report at this time. There are 19 cases currently with 15 recovered, 3 active and 1 death.

We know that the stimulus checks have been sent out. It is very important that you use caution if you are considering shopping for items at local stores. Longer shopping times will increase the chance of you becoming infected with COVID-19. Please consider looking at the number of people shopping. If a parking lot looks full, wait until later to go in when crowds are not as big. Waiting in lines is never fun, but during this crisis, stores are required to only allow a select number of customers in at one time. This is to protect you, your family and their staff. We know it is an inconvenience, but every little bit helps with social distancing. We are going to make it through this. Keep up what you are doing.
