South Central Public Health District is monitoring the novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19) situation very closely.
Our staff is working closely with the Idaho Department of Health and Welfare and healthcare providers throughout the region. Even as Idaho takes steps to reopen the economy, SCPHD encourages everyone to take precautions to avoid all respiratory diseases including staying home whenever possible, keeping six feet between you and other people, and washing your hands regularly for at least 20 seconds.
Symptoms may appear 2-14 days after exposure to the virus. Call your medical provider if you:
Are concerned you might have been exposed, and
Have a cough or shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
Or at least two of these symptoms:
Repeated shaking with chills
New loss of taste or smell
If you do not have a medical provider call 2-1-1 for assistance.
