As we open up to more and more social activity, we should all be aware that the virus is out there.  The best we can do at this time is follow the CDC guidelines.

– Wash hands often (use Sanitizer if soap and water is not available)
– Clean surfaces that are touched often (door nobs, hand rails and other areas where the general public touches a lot).
– Do not touch your eyes, nose or mouth without washing your hands.
– Wear a mask when you are in situations that you cannot maintain a 6 ft. social distance.

I have been around attending meetings today all over the place. Everyone is trying hard to deal with the hand we have been dealt.
 
Everyone is tired of trying to deal with COVID-19. All we can do is the best we can do everyday. Put one foot in front of the other and push forward.
 
Something else we can all do is give ourselves and others a break. Try to do an act of kindness for someone each day. Put yourself in their shoes. Also, we can do is give our brains a break. Have a COVID-free day. This means going one day a week without watching numbers. All of our minds need that break. Exercise, read a book, watch old movies, go on a picnic. What ever brings you joy. Stay safe Callaway!

121 Recovered (+8)

We had a fairly active weekend and are looking towards bringing additional help into the health department as we need it for contact tracing. We have reached out to some retired nurses in our community and our local Medical Reserve Corp for assistance. Callaway County Health Department staff are very busy contacting citizens and cannot answer individual calls requesting counts for our county. Please refer to callawaycovid19.com for the latest counts.
 
This time of year we are more active and spend more time around friends and family. We all need to continue to be mindful of large and small gatherings. We are seeing positive asymptomatic individuals that have little to no idea where they could have contracted the virus. Wearing masks help, so individuals are encouraged to utilize masks. If you happen to be positive and are not symptomatic, they could protect the general public and friends from contracting the virus.

Here is Wednesday’s COVID-19 update from the Callaway County Health Department.

The numbers for today are as follows:

157 Total
104 Recovered
52 Active
1 Deaths

We have five new active COVID-19 cases for today, but moved four others from the active list and onto the recovered list.

We have had a busy day again. The health department is getting a new phone system, so our phones were down for a
some time. We had a good moment when we were trying to figure out our new phones and made mistakes. We all had a good laugh and really needed it. Have you laughed any lately? There is all kinds of studies that show laughter is great medicine for all kinds of problems.

Look for things that can bring a smile to your face and a chuckle to to share with someone close to you. Watch an old funny movie, maybe one that you loved as a child. We all sometimes need to go back to a simpler time. Stay safe Callaway!

After a very busy end to our week last Friday, activity has slowed down. We are removing two (2) off the active list. We are working on getting additional contract tracers to help our nurses out in case we receive many at once. Our busiest day has been last Friday when we had 13 new cases reported in one day. Stay safe Callaway! Avoid crowds and wear a mask if you think you have COVID-19.
