(Crocker)–The Pulaski County Health Department announced Monday afternoon that there have been 9 more confirmed coronavirus cases since last week. These new cases bring the county’s Covid-19 total to 143. Health Department officials say that, due to the increase in travel and people returning to work, it is best to assume that every location you visit is a location of potential exposure and take the appropriate precautions to protect yourselves, your families, and our communities. Individuals who are identified as close contact with a confirmed positive case will be notified. The officials stress practicing to help keep the spread of communicable diseases to a minimum. These precautions include social distancing, wearing a face-covering when in public, limiting in-person interactions, avoiding contact with people who are sick, covering coughs and sneezes, proper hand-washing, cleaning frequently used surfaces, and staying home when sick.
It is of the utmost importance that any individual experiencing symptoms isolate from others.
