Emergency Command Center reminding people of COVID-19 guidelines

ABERDEEN, S.D. (Brown County Emergency Operations Center) – The Brown County EOC would like to remind everyone to please continue to practice Covid-19 guidelines set for by the CDC. Those guidelines are:

 Clean hands often, using soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
 Cover coughs & sneezes with a tissue or inside of your elbow.
 Avoid close contact with other people, stay home when you can and practice physical distancing when out of the house.
 Clean and disinfect touched surfaces frequently.
 Wear a cloth face cover out in the public. The need to cover your mouth and nose.
 Immune compromised people need to do what is best for you.

As we have seen an increase in positive cases in Brown County, it is not time to panic, now is the time to step up our game on the above listed guidelines. As the total number of tests being performed goes up we will probably see an increase in positive cases.

Nice weather has people wanting to get out even more, along with the Governor’s “back to normal” plan is just a reminder that we still need to practice and make good decisions.

Remember we got this far with the above guidelines and we need to continue with this to help us get thru this pandemic.
