Due to the critical nature of EMS/Fire first response we are implementing restricted public access to the fire station and personnel. This will include pausing our onsite/station CPR training, car seat installation, station tours, public displays etc. We also have to restrict receiving outside food and drink from the community.
This procedure will remain in effect until such a time as deemed safe. At this time there are currently no confirmed cases of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) in Clay County. However, the situation here in the U.S. and abroad is changing daily.
We would like to remind you that If you are feeling generally ill (not having difficulty breathing or chest pain) and have reason to believe you have been exposed to COVID-19, please call your health care provider for instructions. Do not go to the emergency room or the health department for testing. Please see the information below from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to learn more about what COVID-19 is, how it spreads, travel guidance, information for health care providers and more. You can also stay informed by following Clay County Public Health Center on Facebook and Twitter.
