Taney County Health Department (TCHD) announces two new cases of COVID-19 bringing the total number of cases to eight (8). To protect the patients’ right to privacy, identifying information will not be provided TCHD’s Communicable Disease Investigation Team is working to contact residents who may have had contact with the individuals. “Although one of these cases are related to domestic travel, we want our residents to know that we are seeing community spread of COVID-19,” said Lisa Marshall, director of the TCHD, “We want to remind residents to follow preventive guidelines, including staying at home as mandated by the governor.” For frequently asked questions about the mandate go to: https://governor.mo.gov/stay-home-missouri-order-guidance-and-frequently-asked-questions.
TCHD also wants to remind you to wear a face mask when out in public, wash your hands frequently, and practice physical distancing.
Another reminder from TCHD - if you have a scheduled appointment for any service, please call before coming to your appointment. Clients who are screened and found to have a fever will be asked to reschedule their appointments.
