It is important to remember, as restrictions relax,
residents will need to continue to observe and practice physical distancing and take infection control precautions.
Increased interactions between residents and workers can increase the risk and rate of transmission of COVID-19 within the community. Asymptomatic (not exhibiting symptoms) individuals are capable of spreading the virus to others. We should assume that each of us can infect others even when we aren’t sick, and that others can infect us.
People who have underlying health conditions such as heart, lung or kidney disease, diabetes, cancer or compromised immune systems will still be at much greater risk for serious illness from COVID-19, so it will continue to be very important for the County's vulnerable residents to stay at home as much as possible.
