The Taney County Health Department (TCHD) Saturday announces the ninth case of COVID-19 in Taney County. The individual is a contact of a previous Taney County case and was under quarantine at home. At this time there is no known risk to the community as the individual followed quarantine instructions.
“The individual followed quarantine instructions and did not have any known contacts in the community,” states Lisa Marshall, TCHD Director. “This is a great example of how we all have a responsibility to protect the public and following the appropriate precautions is essential.”
Those asked to quarantine should only leave their home to seek medical attention, and should not be leaving for essential items such as food. These individuals are encouraged to use delivery services, or have friends and family leave items at their doorstep. TCHD continues to encourage everyone to wear facemask when in public to protect the community. Staying at home, unless leaving for essential items, is still the best practice at this point in time.
