3 New Cases Of COVID In Calaveras

3 New Cases Of COVID In Calaveras
Calaveras Public Health reports three additional cases of COVID-19. The three unrelated cases include one adult male and one adult female between the ages of 18-49 years old, and an adult male between the ages of 50-64. Two cases reside in the Valley Springs area and the third case resides along the upper Highway 4 corridor. The source of exposure for each case is being investigated. Health Officer Dr. Dean Kelaita says “we are at an important moment in Calaveras County and across California as businesses and public spaces have reopened. As more people leave their homes, their businesses and public spaces have reopened. As more people leave their homes, their risk of exposure and infection to COVID-19 increases. We all need to continue to do our part to keep Calaveras safe and healthy for everyone. That means following simple prevention methods such as keeping a safe distance from others when you leave your home and wearing a face covering.”

There currently is no vaccine to protect against COVID-19. The best way to avoid exposure to the virus is:

-Stay at least 6 feet away from people outside of your household

-Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds

-avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands

-Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue or your elbow (not your hands)

-Wear a face covering over your nose and mouth if you are in public and around other people

Calaveras Public Health staff is investigating the new cases to determine any possible persons who may have had personal contact with the positive individuals. Close contacts will be contacted by the health department, assessed and monitored for signs and symptoms of COVID-19 illness. Those with close contact may be recommended to be tested for COVID-19 infection.
