“Fortunately, so far, our area is avoiding the sharp increase in COVID-19 cases currently ravaging much of the country, but we know that could change quickly.  We are especially concerned about the potential for the virus to spread through upcoming holiday gatherings.  We urge you to plan now to ensure your family get-togethers are safe.  Experts recommend you follow these guidelines to protect your family,” said Scott Steiner, Phoebe Putney Health System President & CEO.

  • Keep your gathering small
  • Limit travel
  • Gather outdoors, when possible
  • Properly distance from others
  • Limit contact with those outside your family group leading up to your gathering
  • Be especially cautious around those at high-risk for serious complications from COVID
  • Wear your mask

“This week, the CDC announced that new scientific evidence proves what we have long believed – that wearing a mask not only protects those around you but protects you as well.  It’s just one more reason to continue to wear a mask when you are around others, until we can defeat this virus,” Steiner added.
