11.6% Positivity -14 Day Average

We have seen a steady sharp increase of cases in Adair County in the last month as well as surrounding counties. With the colder weather and more activities indoors, this virus has a greater potential to spread- especially among households and indoor gatherings where social distancing is not possible and respiratory droplets from those who are ill are more likely to travel and linger in the air. Remember that someone who is positive with COVID-19 may be infectious approximately 2 days BEFORE they even show mild symptoms or they may not have any symptoms at all. Please remember to wear a mask when you cannot social distance, social distance at least 6 feet as much as possible, wash your hands often, and stay home when sick.

- After using the bathroom
- Before and after preparing or eating food
- After coughing, sneezing, or blowing your nose
- After you have been in a public place.

Scheduled Dr. apt this am with our Dr. David Black. I have to commend him and his staff at Adair County Health in Stuart, for how thorough I was treated as I entered the office. Questions, make and model of my SUV, temp and finger monitor etc. They are on it! Then escorted to another room with chairs placed at a distance. All concerned for our well being and safety during this virus time. Mask if needed and everything sanitized and wiped down. Thank you Doc and staff! You are the best! Colonoscopy for next week got canceled. I wanted to get it over with but safety first. Now we'll be saving on the T paper. :)
Hope everyone will join Marcia Hendricks and Jane Ernst, Tuesday, April 23rd at 6:30 PM at the Warren Cultural Center for the Successful Communities Speaker Series: Health Care in Adair County. Soulshine Food Truck will be on the Square prior to the event. Grab a bite to eat, bring it upstairs, and join other friends for good conversation and whole lot of learning. Hope to see you there.
When is the Senior Life Solutions building going to begin.
