Many thanks to our Ellis County leadership for this important reminder to help curb the rapid rise of COVID-19 in our community. However, citizens should not hesitate to call 911. Though the local hospitals may be stretched, our paramedics are trained to provide life-saving care and are ready to respond. Most importantly, be safe. COVID-19 vaccines are in abundant supply and will help keep you out of the hospital if you become infected. Because Ellis County and Midlothian are categorized as areas with “High” levels of COVID-19 transmission (https://covid.cdc.gov/covid-data-tracker/#county-view), it is more important than ever to follow the CDC’s guidelines. Midlothian's Mayor Richard Reno, has asked that the guidelines be repeated here in hopes that together we can reduce hospitalizations and deaths from COVID-19.
• Wear a mask to protect yourself and others and stop the spread of COVID-19.
• Stay at least 6 feet (about 2 arm lengths) from others who don’t live with you.
• Avoid crowds and poorly ventilated spaces. The more people you are in contact with, the more likely you are to be exposed to COVID-19.
• Get a COVID-19 vaccine. www.vaccine.gov.
• Clean your hands often, either with soap and water for 20 seconds or a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol.
• Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
• Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
• Clean frequently touched objects and surfaces daily. If someone is sick or has tested positive for COVID-19, disinfect frequently touched surfaces.
Monitor your health daily and if you have symptoms, get tested: DSHS COVID-19 Testing Site locations: https://tdem.maps.arcgis.com/apps/webappviewer/index.html...

Notice: Please maintain heightened health and safety practices, including staying home and quarantining if you exhibit any symptoms of COVID-19. This will help reduce the number of COVID patients in Ellis County hospitals, which will in turn prevent EMS services from being delayed by having to transport patients outside the county.
