Health Center announces COVID-19 preparations

Boone County Health Center made a public announcement Monday, Aug. 10, regarding COVID-19 preparations. Following is the announcement:
“Boone County Health Center has been preparing for COVID for several months with solid plans in place to keep you, our patients, safe as you continue to seek care at our facilities. As we see an increase of COVID positive cases in Boone County, including Boone County Health Center staff, the following steps are recommended:
• Wear a mask. When both people are masked, risk is so low it basically eliminates the risk of exposure to COVID-19.
• Wash your hands well or use hand sanitizer.
• When you come for rehab, labs, or a visit, do not stop along the way and chat or have coffee.
Masks are mandatory for staff, patients and visitors at Boone County Health Center.
