March 30th Afternoon Update - Yavapai County Community Health Services

New Tab on ADHS COVID-19 Data – Testing in AZ

In a press release over the weekend, and with the Governor’s executive order for all private labs to report all testing completed, positive or negative, ADHS has added a “COVID-19 Testing Arizona” tab. This indicates more accurately the amount of testing being done in the state, and in counties.

The site shows there have been 16,759 tests completed in AZ – and 456 residents in Yavapai County have been tested.

Maricopa has 690 cases, Pima 187, Pinal 64, Coconino 71, Navajo 88, Apache 17, Yavapai 19, Graham 2, Yuma 6, Mohave 7, La Paz 2, Santa Cruz 2, Cochise 4, Gila 1, and Greenlee now has 1. There have been 20 deaths reported in Arizona.

There are now 19 positive cases in Yavapai County. 12 residents in the Quad-Cities area, and 7 in the Verde Valley area. YCCHS is investigating the 19th case, but the breakdown from this morning’s 18 cases is 8 seniors 65+, 10 adults 18-54; 11 male, 7 female.

The number of cases may not match the Arizona Department of Health’s numbers, as Medsis reporting is updated as of 5 p.m. the night before, and cases continue to be reported throughout the day. All Arizonans should assume the virus is present in their community and take precautions.

• All Arizonans should assume the virus is present in their community and take precautions.
• The Yavapai Emergency Phone Bank is open– 8-5, M-F--928-442-5103
• COVID-19 Hotline call 2-1-1 from 8 to 8 p.m. each day of the week
• For COVID-19 information en español, see www.azdhs.gov/COVID-19

Initially, the CDC was only recommending testing for people with exposure to an infected person. However, all that changed once community spread was confirmed in the United States. In response, the CDC changed its recommendations to allow anyone with COVID-19-like symptoms to be tested as long as a doctor approved the request.

Not everyone who is exposed to the virus will catch it, and some people who are infected will have only minor or no symptoms. On average, symptoms like fever, cough, or shortness of breath tend to develop five to six days after exposure. However, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says it can take as long as 14 days for symptoms to emerge. If, after that period of time, you have not developed any of the typical COVID-19 symptoms, you are likely in the clear.

COVID-19 Hotline call 2-1-1 from 8 to 8 p.m. each day of the week

For COVID-19 information en español, see www.azdhs.gov/COVID-19

At this time, the goal of testing should be to limit potential introduction of COVID-19 in healthcare and congregate settings and vulnerable populations.

Public health and healthcare professionals should prioritize testing among three specific groups until sufficient and consistent PPE, testing supplies and capacity are widely available:

Healthcare workers, first responders, and employer identified critical infrastructure personnel* with COVID-19 symptoms

Individuals living in congregate settings with symptoms of COVID-19

Individuals hospitalized with respiratory symptoms

Community-based COVID-19 testing (drive-through, walk-up, etc.) should be focused on making tests available to the three priority groups above.

Healthy individuals do not require testing. These individuals should practice social-distancing and follow the recommendations of their local and state public health authorities.

See the following information on the Governor's Executive Order on:

- halting elective surgeries
- requirements for restaurants, bars, movie theaters and gyms in counties with confirmed COVID-19 cases
- and more:

I’m announcing new steps to combat the spread of #COVID19. These actions are based on the facts and on data, and come after careful consultation with public health experts from every county in Arizona, our hospitals, local elected officials, and private sector partners.

They reflect guidance from the CDC and the latest recommendations from the Arizona Department of Health Services while going even further to bolster our efforts with additional manpower and resources.

To ensure Arizonans have continued access to food, I’m activating the National Guard to assist grocery stores & food banks in the face of heightened demand. This will ensure grocery stores have the manpower needed to keep shelves stocked @AZNationalGuard

I'm issuing an Executive Order that halts all elective surgeries in the state to free up medical resources and maintain the capacity for hospitals and providers to continue offering vital services. This will reserve critical protective equipment for the fight against COVID-19.

I’m issuing an Executive Order that requires restaurants in counties w/ confirmed cases of COVID-19 to provide dine-out options only, and closes bars, movie theaters and gyms. Restaurants will be allowed to deliver alcoholic beverages w/ food purchase

I'm issuing an Executive Order to delay expiration dates on Arizona driver licenses, ensuring residents over the age of 65 do not need to visit Motor Vehicle Division offices to renew their driver licenses during the public health emergency.

This is an all-in effort. We remain focused in the state of Arizona on proactively limiting the spread of COVID-19 and will continue to protect public health.
