Bates County COVID-19 Update

August 10, 2020

Bates County Health Center has confirmed 3 more positive cases of COVID-19 in Bates County which include:  2 individuals from Butler & 1 from Adrian.

All contact tracing has been done and any parties that have had close contact, as reported to us by the positive cases, were notified.

Any individuals advised of need for isolation and quarantine are per CDC guidelines and isolation is complete for one of these individuals related to date of symptom onset.

At this time, Bates County has had 53 positives cases, 6 of which are currently active and isolated.

We would also like to remind individuals that if you have been tested, you should quarantine at home until test results are received—this decreases any possible exposure for others in the event your results come back positive.

With our numbers for Bates County rising, we hope everyone will continue to practice social distancing, clean/disinfect any high touched surfaces, wash their hands with soap and water routinely, use hand sanitizer if soap and water is not available, avoid touching your face (especially eyes, nose & mouth), and to stay home if you are sick.  Wearing a mask in public is also encouraged.  It is up to each and every one of us to stop the spread of this disease!
