New cases of COVID-19 reported

KEARNEY –Forty-two (42) new cases of COVID-19 were reported by Two Rivers Public Health Department in the seven-county region it serves for Saturday, December 12. Please check the Two Rivers website for more detailed information for our citizens on current COVID-19.

New confirmed cases for Saturday include:

  • Buffalo County -27
  • Dawson County- 3
  • Gosper County- 1
  • Kearney County-5
  • Phelps County – 6

Two Rivers Public Health Department strongly advises that local policies based on scientific data are implemented. “The science is settled,” states Health Director Jeremy Eschliman. Increased case numbers and hospital bed usage are at higher levels than last spring, and TRPHD urges our citizens to take personal responsibility for stopping the spread of disease. We all have a responsibility to slow the spread of COVID-19. It is imperative that we protect each other by doing things like wearing masks and practicing social distancing so we can return to a strong economy and normal day-to-day activities

COVID-19 is still circulating in our district. Two Rivers recommends continued actions to prevent the spread of any illness such as:

  • Know how it spreads
  • Wash your hands often
  • Avoid close contact
  • Cover your mouth and nose with a cloth face cover when around others
  • Cover your cough and sneeze with a tissue or your sleeve
  • Clean and disinfect
  • Monitor your overall health and specifically monitor for signs and symptoms of COVID-19
  • Stay home if you have symptoms or are awaiting test results

Recent studies show that a significant portion of people with COVID-19 lack symptoms and those who eventually develop symptoms can pass the virus to others before showing symptoms, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The CDC now recommends wearing cloth face coverings in public settings where other social distancing measures are difficult to maintain (grocery stores, pharmacies, etc.) especially in areas of significant community-based transmission – https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/prevent-getting-sick/cloth-face-cover-faq.html
