From Pastor Donnie Gullion 1/12
In Jefferson County, the number of cases is back up in the Extreme category. This is the highest category that is provided. Our 14-Day trend is correspondingly back in the red (going up). As a result, we encourage everyone to be as careful as possible.
Possibly the below information from the CDC will be helpful or a good reminder.
Who needs to quarantine?
People who have been in close contact with someone who has COVID-19 (excluding people who have had COVID-19 within the past 3 months).
What counts as close contact?
You were within 6 feet of someone who has COVID-19 for a total of 15 minutes or more
You provided care at home to someone who is sick with COVID-19
You had direct physical contact with the person (hugged or kissed them)
You shared eating or drinking utensils
They sneezed, coughed, or somehow got respiratory droplets on you
Steps to take
Stay home and monitor your health
Stay home for 14 days after your last contact with a person who has COVID-19.
Watch for fever (100.4◦F), cough, shortness of breath, or other symptoms of COVID-19
If possible, stay away from others, especially people who are at higher risk for getting very sick from COVID-19
