The West Central District Health Department has updated it’s COVID-19 Community Risk Dial. The Health Department has announced that the risk dial has remained at a 3.46, which is in the elevated risk level. According to a press release from the WCDHD the COVID-19 Risk Dial contains recommended guidance to help prevent and control the spread of COVID-19.
While in the Elevated Risk category, physical distance of 6 feet or greater, wearing face coverings when outside the home, frequent handwashing (or use of hand sanitizer), staying home if you are having flu-like or COVID-like symptoms, disinfecting high touch surfaces, and having at-risk and vulnerable people remain home are recommended as the greatest tools in reducing the spread of COVID-19.
For more information on recommendations for the various risk categories of the WCDHD Community Risk Dial, please visit the COVID-19 Risk Dial page on our website. There have been 150 cases of COVID-19 for the time period of 1/9/2021 to 1/19/2021. Moving forward, WCDHD will be posting a COVID-19 case number update on a weekly basis with the risk dial update.
