Logan County Health Commissioner Dr. Boyd Hoddinott made recommendations Monday for travelers who have flown on an airplane either domestically or internationally in the within the past 10 days or for individuals who have recently returned by car from New York City.
He is strongly encouraging those individuals to selfquarantine for 14 days from the day of their return.
“Within those 14 days, check your temperature daily and monitor for COVID-19 symptoms,” he said in a release. “Symptoms may be mild to severe and include a fever of 100.4 degrees Fahrenheit or higher, dry cough and shortness of breath.
“We know that the virus is community spread and without sufficient testing, you need to assume that you have been exposed. These precautions will help stop the spread of any disease.”
