Coronavirus Update - 3/17/20

Dear Wintervillians,

After a conference call this morning with the District Health Director and the local CoVID-19 Policy Group I can confirm that 2 people in Athens-Clarke County have tested positive for the Corona Virus.

The two cases are not linked and neither patient had traveled in or out of the country or state so it is believed they contracted the virus through community transmission. These 2 individuals are not high risk and are improving, but more cases are expected so please continue to follow procedures spelled out in the CDC guidelines for hygiene and social distancing with regard to CoVID-19.

I will continue to update the community and City Hall will be open this week if you have any questions or concerns.
