We are living in difficult times. As communities come together to combat COVID-19, it is important we share the most complete and updated information that we can. Knowledge is power; it gives us the ability to act rationally and remain calm. This, more than anything else, will help us defeat COVID-19.
Logan County Health Department and its partners are committed to doing all we can to protect the community. We are working with our partners to facilitate sound public policy; to educate the public how to reduce its risk of infection and transmission; and to advocate for appropriate practices by each individual to protect themselves and their loved ones from COVID-19.
It is equally important for us to protect those that are infected with COVID-19. In order to comply with State and Federal Privacy requirements, Logan County Health Department will not release any information concerning individuals affected by COVID-19 or any other illnesses.
Logan County Health Department staff are in regular contact with those residents that are infected. We are monitoring their status and advising them on their course of recovery.
We urge the public to take these steps:
- STAY INFORMED. The most recent updates on COVID-19 can be found on the web at coronavirus.health.ok.gov.
- TAKE ACTION. Wash your hands; use hand sanitizer; avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth; practice social distancing; cover coughs and sneezes; avoid public areas; stay home if you’re sick; and talk to your healthcare provider.
Please remember to follow the Governor’s “Safer at Home” executive order advising vulnerable population and those over age 65 to stay home until April 30 and for non-essential businesses in counties with COVID-19 cases to temporarily suspend services until April 16.
