Even though the number of confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Stevens County was recently reduced from two to one, Emergency Management Director Dona Greiner cautioned citizens to adhere to the CDC health guidelines at Tuesday’s meeting of the Stevens County Board of Commissioners.
“We do know that there are more cases. In the surrounding counties it’s really showing that there are cases out there,” said Greiner. “And it’s beginning to grow now when people are mingling and out seeing each other. So, to just be on alert for that.”
Greiner said that while people are out more in the nicer weather dealing with holidays, graduation parties and gatherings, it’s more important than ever to observe social distancing, wear protective face coverings in public and wipe down heavily used surfaces.
