Coronavirus may remain a threat, but things are beginning to re-open around Northwest Georgia.
Logan Boss, Public Information Officer for the Georgia Department of Public Health’s Northwest Health District, acknowledges that lawmakers have been tasked with making some tough decisions in regards to maintaining the safety of the public from the virus while reviving the economy. After all, he asserts, Northwest Georgians cannot remain on lockdown.
Boss states that this decision to re-open is risky, as the numbers of confirmed coronavirus cases and fatalities statewide continue to rise.
All Northwest Georgians should continue to take precautions to minimize the spread of coronavirus, adds Boss. Those include maintaining a safe distance from others, wearing face masks when in public, and frequent hand-washing. Most importantly, urges Boss, avoid close contact with other individuals and avoid crowds!
Boss encourages those who believe that they could have coronavirus to visit the Georgia Department of Public Health’s website at www.dph.georgia.gov for information about testing.
