Our Health Officer would like to provide the following links to all those looking for up to date information on the coronavirus.  Please note, there have been social media posts regarding individuals going door to door claiming to be from the CDC. The CDC is not deploying teams of people to go door to door to conduct surveillance. You should not let these people into your homes or speak with them. Contact local law enforcement if this activity occurs.
