MASON COUNTY PUBLIC HEALTH INFORMATION AND UPDATES


2020_0319_Social-Distancing-Image.jpg#asset:9722


State of Emergency, Communication and a Message of Compassion:

The Mason County Board of Commissioners declared a state of emergency for Mason County. Multiple agencies and jurisdictions from Mason County are working together to coordinate efforts and provide helpful and up to date information for our Mason County residents. The Mason County Emergency Operations Center (EOC) is open as well as our Joint Operations Center (JIC).

At this time, our priority is to provide accurate information, provide current statistics to keep our citizens informed, and make sure all citizens are being provided the care they need. While information about COVID-19 is ever-changing, the basics remain the same:

- Wash your hands, Clean surfaces, Cover your cough, and Stay home if you are sick

- SHOW COMPASSION FOR EACH OTHER!!!!

Please remember that everyone needs supplies such as toilet paper, paper towels, hand soap, hand sanitizer, disinfectant cleaners. While the spread of COVID-19 continues, the effects vary depending on each person. Children are showing the lowest affects. Younger adults are having fairly mild symptoms or no symptoms. Those at risk are our immune compromised or older people such as our Grandparents. Please practice social distancing for a while but make sure they have the necessary household supplies. The immune compromised or older people may not feel comfortable going out to the stores right now. As much as you can, please assist them with online orders and delivery or personally shop and deliver for them.

Remember to show compassion for others. Although coughing and sneezing may be a symptom of COVID-19 or the flu, other people who have allergies or a simple cold may also cough or sneeze.

Avoid Unnecessary Visits to the Hospital and Clinics

If you think you’ve been exposed to the virus and have respiratory symptoms, call the Mason County Public Health Hotline at (360) 427-9670 ext 599 before visiting the hospital or clinic.

Please call ahead before coming in person to one of our physician clinics, urgent care centers or emergency departments. You can find phone numbers for our providers and locations at https://www.masongeneral.com/find-a-provider.

To limit the person-to-person spread of the virus and to protect our most medically vulnerable community members, we ask you to avoid unnecessary visits to Mason General Hospital, Mason Clinic and our other clinics.

Individuals who:

• are classified as having a higher risk of getting very sick

• are in close contact to those with a higher risk

• are exhibiting any signs of ill health (fever, cough, sniffles, etc.)

should make an effort to stay home if possible. Our patients and the community’s health is a top priority for Mason Health.

If You Feel Sick

If you are experiencing fever, cough, sore throat or shortness of breath or have concerns about exposure to COVID-19, it is very important to call the Mason County Public Health Hotline at (360) 427-9670 ext 599 before visiting the hospital or clinic.

If you need to access Mason Health's Emergency Department for respiratory symptoms, please wear a respiratory mask as soon as arriving and continue wearing throughout your visit.

We also urge you to stay home from school or work if you feel sick. Wash your hands frequently with soap and water and avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth.
