Saline County COVID-19 Update from Judge Arey
To Saline County Residents,
Attached [below] are the numbers for Saline County as of last night. Currently there are 29 confirmed cases Saline County that is up 15 from April 1st. Sadly I did receive a call yesterday morning from the Regional Director for the Department of Health notifying me of Saline County’s first resident that has died as a result of COVID-19. She could not give me any details about the individual, but I ask that you add this unknown family to your prayers.
The CDC is now recommending that everyone wear a cloth face cover when they have to go out in public. The cloth face cover is meant to protect other people in case you are infected. Please do not use a facemask meant for a healthcare worker. Continue to keep a distance of 6 feet between yourself and others. The cloth face cover is not a substitute for social distancing. I plan to start wearing a cloth mask today when I’m out in public and at the office and I plan to encourage others to do the same. I’ll be honest, it feels awkward or more like weird, but I know that it is necessary.
Please Stay Safe, and remember no more than 10, stay 6 feet apart and wash your hands.
