The facility breakdown is only showing those facilities from where we received a postive swab for COVID-19. Facilities will be added when and if there is a positive case of COVID19. If a regulated facility from either of our counties is not listed, there are no positive cases of COVID-19 as of the release of this briefing. The local health departments do not have oversight with many regulated facilities, which may include nursing homes, correctional facilities, hospitals, etc.

Pediatric Multi-System Inflammatory Syndrome is a new health condition appearing in children between the ages of 0-21. Some doctors think the condition is related to having COVID-19, but the connection is still not clear. If you notice any of the following symptoms, call your pediatrician: a fever that won’t go away, abdominal pain, diarrhea or vomiting, rash or changes in skin color, trouble breathing, and your child seems confused or overly sleepy. While Pediatric Multi-system Inflammatory Syndrome sounds frightening, the American Academy of Pediatrics reminds parents that this condition is very rare.
