COVID-19 MESSAGE OF THE DAY 3/24/2020

As of this morning, Kingman County does not have a confirmed case of COVID-19.  We need everyone to understand the following: 

  • Confirmed COVID-19 cases mean that someone’s test for COVID-19 was sent to a lab, and there are ACTUAL POSITIVE RESULTS.  This person and his closest contacts (household contacts and other people as directed by KDHE) will be contacted by public health and given further instructions.
  • People who are being tested for COVID-19 are waiting for their results.  These are NOT confirmed COVID-19 cases.  These people, along with their household contacts, should be isolating at home while they are awaiting their results and not be out in the community.
  • People who have been tested for COVID-19 and waiting for results should understand that they have not been officially diagnosed with laboratory-confirmed COVID-19 and should not be telling people that they have COVID-19 or being tested for COVID-19.
  • Facebook is a dangerous place to post any information related to COVID-19.  Prevention is one thing-Facebook is a powerful means of posting helpful tips in promoting health.  However, posting information about people undergoing COVID-19 testing or people who MIGHT have COVID-19 is fueling fear and panic. 

Spreading information that cannot confirmed by a reliable resource is dangerous and needs to stop now.  If there is a confirmed COVID-19 case, the Kingman County Health Department should be the first to communicate that fact, and our plan is to publicize that information via our Facebook page and the Kingman County Health Department website first.  In the meantime, we suggest we do all we can to take care of ourselves and not worry about what other people are doing.  All of us can wash our hands and keep our distance if we absolutely don’t have to get out, and we can encourage other people in our circle to do the same.  Your community is watching and is concerned.  Let’s do all we can to heed the action being taken to keep COVID-19 under control here.
