How To Protect Yourself and Others from the Corona Virus   
Self-isolate if you are 65 years of age older OR if you have a compromised immune system or a serious underlying medical condition. This effort will help protect those most vulnerable to serious illness caused by this disease. 

  •  Wash hands with soap and water for a minimum 20 seconds 
  • Avoid touching eyes, nose or mouth with unwashed hands. 
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick. 
  • Stay away from work, school or other people if you become sick with respiratory symptoms like fever and cough. 
Follow guidance from public health officials. Find local coronavirus information at
In addition, Nevada County Public Health states that with increased community transmission across the state and increasing numbers of cases in nearby counties, we should assume that there are likely undetected cases and act as though there is community transmission occurring in Nevada County, so everyone should be aware and practice the recommended steps to keep themselves healthy, including social distancing. 
Public Health is working with partners in health care, education, business, law enforcement and others to prevent and slow the spread of this illness, and every community member will need to do their part as well if we want to preserve the public health and safety of our county’s residents older OR if you have a compromised immune system or a serious underlying medical condition.
