July 10, 2020 Callaway County COVID-19 Update

The Callaway County Health Department has one new positive COVID-19 case to report at this time. There are currently 61 total cases, with 42 recovered, 18 active and one death.
 
With the weekend upon us, please do all you can to stay away from large gatherings. We are seeing our positive COVID-19 numbers rise as many people congregate at family gatherings, marches and other events. We held this virus for a time. Let’s get back into thinking about each other. We are a great county with great people. Let’s show our neighbors how the job is done.
 
As gatherings continue throughout central Missouri and testing has expanded, we will continue to see a rise in positive COVID-19 numbers. Please social distance, wash your hands for 20 seconds and stay at home if you are sick. Take all precautions when you are out and about. Keep up the good work Callaway County.
 
BE SMART, STAY SIX FEET APART
 
If you have a business or church and have questions on reopening and distancing, please call the Callaway County Health Department. We will come to your site or answer any questions we can over the phone.

June 25, 2020 Callaway County COVID-19 Update

The Callaway County Health Department has another positive COVID-19 case to report in Callaway County. On a better note, we are removing one from the list of active patients. There are currently 44 cases, with 34 recovered, nine active and one death.

Still to be avoided for maximum safety: large crowds, people speaking in loud voices (research has found that loud vocalizations tend to spread more virus droplets and quieter voices spread less viral droplets, its a matter of velocity of the droplets how far they spread). Dirty hands, lets keep them clean. No touching of face, mouth or eyes with dirty hands. If you need to rub your eye, wash your hands or use a tissue to provide a barrier to your bare hands. Always wash your hands before and after you eat.

STAY SAFE AND HEALTHY CALLAWAY.

June 18, 2020 Callaway County COVID-19 Update

The Callaway County Health Department has nine new positive COVID-19 cases to report for this week. There are currently 41 cases, 30 recovered, ten active and one death.

In the future, we will be providing COVID-19 updates weekly, unless the Callaway County Commission decides a different schedule.

As the State of Missouri continues to open up, please remember to be considerate of others. If you are sick, stay home and try to social distance as much as possible. Wearing a mask is another way to protect yourself and others.

As more testing occurs, our numbers are likely to increase, please remember not everyone ends up in the hospital. Most are recovering at home. We do not give out information about the location of positive cases, only know that they are your fellow Callawegians.

If you have a business or church and have questions on reopening and distancing, please call the Callaway County Health Department. We will come to your site or answer any questions we can over the phone.
