The Mohave County Department of Public Health makes contact with all confirmed cases and encourages self-isolation for ten days to two weeks, depending on their symptoms and unique work and living situation.  Public Health staff then identify the people who have been exposed to the confirmed case (contact tracing) and encourage them to self-isolate until they are past the point of possibly developing the infection.  Public Health monitors each confirmed case, and all of their contacts are during their quarantines.

There remains the problem of an overall lack of interest in wearing a mask, staying home when sick, and true adherence to social distancing. This allows the COVID-19 virus to continue its march through our county. Over confidence is not the best attitude.

Meanwhile, please keep in mind that the best ways to prevent the spread of COVID-19 are to: 

*Maintain Social Distancing (at least 6 Feet apart!)

*Stay at home if at all possible. 

* Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are     not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.

* Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.

* Avoid close contact with anyone who is sick.

* Stay home when you are sick, or if you are a not an essential employee.

* Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then immediately throw the tissue in the trash.

* Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.

*Beware of false rumors and attempts to discredit COVID-19. It is not a hoax. Check reliable sources when new information comes out.

COVID-19 spreads through the air when an infected person coughs or sneezes. Symptoms are thought to appear within two to 14 days after exposure and consist of fever, cough, runny nose, and difficulty breathing. For people with mild illness, individuals are asked to stay home, drink plenty of fluids, and get rest. For people with more severe symptoms, such as shortness of breath, individuals are advised to seek healthcare, using telemedicine where available.
