Public health and the division of epidemiology is currently conducting a case investigation to determine how the patient was exposed and the potential scope of contacts. Additional information will be released as it is available.

The Craig Emergency Operations Center staff will continue to meet and will determine what actions need to be taken in light of the confirmed case in Craig. All existing quarantine and other measures will remain for the time being.

With the holiday weekend upon us, we are strongly advising residents to follow all health mandates and advisories to reduce the risk of spreading the virus in Craig. These measures include:

  • Do not socialize with persons outside of your household
  • Maintain good social distancing at all times keeping at least six feet between persons
  • Keep all trips for essential services to a minimum to avoid contact and wear a face mask/covering when you do need to make essential service trips
  • Stay home as much as possible
  • Wash your hands frequently and avoid touching your face as much as possible
  • If you have symptoms or have a temperature of 100.4° F or higher contact your primary healthcare provider and self isolate immediately
