“The virus easily spreads among people who are in close contact with each other. Local businesses and people in Calaveras County must do their part to slow the spread of COVID-19. Wear a face covering when you must go out,” states Calaveras County Health Officer Dr. Dean Kelaita.
He adds, “Face coverings block the amount of virus that gets released into the air when an infected person speaks, coughs, or sneezes. You can also slow the spread by getting tested or staying home if you are sick except to get medical care.”
To date, Calaveras Public Health reports 44 cases have recovered, 54 cases remain active, and there is one confirmed COVID-19-related death.
