Miami County Public Health COVID-19 Update

 

Miami County – Miami County Public Health is issuing an update on the COVID-19 in Miami County.

As of today, Monday, April 6, 2020, Miami County is reporting 2 additional deaths due to COVID-19, bring the total number of deaths associated with COVID-19 to 10. Currently, there are 90 positive COVID-19 cases in Miami County.

The newly extended Stay-At-Home order is effective through May 1, 2020. With the amended order, essential businesses, like grocery stores, will be limiting the number of people allowed inside. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is also recommending that people wear a mask or some type of face covering when visiting public spaces where social distancing is difficult to maintain. Wearing a mask will not prevent someone from contracting COVID-19, but it can help prevent them from spreading it to others — especially if they have it, but are not yet showing symptoms.
Wearing a cloth mask in public is not mandatory, but it is strongly recommended. Cloth masks are not a substitute for social distancing, but rather, it is a complement to social distancing. Over the next few weeks, ODH Director, Dr. Acton, is expecting COVID-19 cases in Ohio to peak. This is a critical time for Ohio and community members need to follow the Stay-At-Home order and continue to practice social distancing.
