[ARCHIVED] Evening Briefing Report-COVID-19 4-2-20

Kootenai County, ID:  Following the evening briefing of the Kootenai County Emergency Operations Center (EOC) Unified Command, today’s report shows no new cases of novel coronavirus (COVID-19) in the Panhandle Health District.

Details on any new cases are posted and updated in real time on www.panhandlehealthdistrict.org/covid-19/.

If you begin to show symptoms associated with COVID-19 (cough, fever, and difficulty breathing), ensure you quarantine.  If you are tested for COVID-19, ensure that you self-isolate until you receive your test results.  The importance of self-isolating cannot be stressed enough. However, when the symptoms subside you need to continue to self-isolate for an additional 72 hours before removing yourself from isolation.

Unfortunately, there is a lot of misinformation out there on social media. So for the most accurate and up-to-date information on COVID-19 please continue to follow the Kootenai County Office of Emergency Management’s Facebook page at www.facebook.com/kootenaioem/.

Unified Commanders,

Sheriff Ben Wolfinger

Chief Chris Way
