Kim Fineran, the Crawford County director of public health, said that all 11 county residents who died from COVID-19 had underlying health conditions.

Crawford County Public Health director issues message on quarantine and isolation recommendations

Following is a message emailed by Fineran on Tuesday.

"We want to emphasize that the quarantine and isolation recommendations for COVID-19 are designed to help reduce illness in our communities. While the majority of people experience mild symptoms that can be treated at home, some people get very seriously ill.

"Right now, the best tools that we have to help reduce the numbers of sick people in our communities include distancing (staying at least six feet away from others), wearing appropriate face masks if you cannot distance, avoiding large gatherings/groups of people, and reducing contact with others when you’re sick, you’ve tested positive, or you’ve been exposed to someone who has tested positive.

"Voluntary quarantine and isolation are by far the most preferable methods of reducing community exposures. In instances where someone refuses to quarantine or isolate, the Board of Health can issue an order mandating quarantine or isolation. These orders are enforceable by law and can be issued at any time during the quarantine/isolation period and is enforceable throughout that entire time."
