The numbers for Department of Corrections (DOC) and Fulton State Hospital (FSH) have been excluded from the count in today’s numbers. In the past their numbers were included in the count reported in these updates for the county. However, due to recent increases in their numbers, we felt that it was skewing the numbers for the general public.

We need to return to normal activities but just tweak them to provide a safer environment until we can get through this pandemic.  Out door activities are safer because there is more space and fresh air.  Indoor activities should be limited to immediate families. 

It is recommended when participating in Fall activities that you remain in your area and not travel long distances to other locations.  It is still not conclusive, but is thought there are various strains of COVID-19 that differ in severity.  While here in Central Missouri the current COVID-19 symptoms experienced seem to be mild, liken to that of a cold, in other areas they may be experiencing a more stringent strain where the symptoms are more severe.
