A total of 28 coronavirus cases are currently active in the county — including 20 in the general population and eight in schools.

COVID safe activities

"As we begin to interact with others and participate in activities, its important to remember the more closely you interact with others and the longer that interaction, the higher the risk of COVID-19 spread," said Ina Ponder of the health department.

Those engaging in public activities should continue to protect yourself by practicing everyday preventive actions. Keep these items on hand when venturing out: a mask, tissues and a hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol, if possible.
