KLAMATH FALLS, Ore. – Klamath County Public Health (KCPH) officials report eight new cases of COVID-19 in the community, bringing the local count to 268.
This week’s count is 25.
Information specific to Klamath County can be found at https://www.klamathcounty.org/1076/Klamath-County-data.
KCPH Director Jennifer Little encourages everyone to get a flu shot this fall. It’s likely that flu viruses and the virus that causes COVID-19 will both spread this fall and winter. Healthcare systems could be overwhelmed treating both patients with flu and patients with COVID-19. This means getting a flu vaccine is more important than ever.
Little is also promoting following CDC guidelines in keeping yourself and the community safe and healthy:
Avoid close contact
Cover your mouth and nose with a mask when around others
Cover coughs and sneezes
Clean and disinfect
Monitor Your Health Daily
