COVID-19 Emergency Updates


Social Distance is Especially Important for Older Adults

Thursday, April 9, 2020
 
Older adults and people who have underlying medical conditions may be at higher risk for more severe complications from COVID-19 (cdc.gov). The importance of social distancing, especially for those who fall into the above category, cannot be stressed enough. On April 5, 2020 The Montgomery County Office of Public Health (OPH) reported that the countywide total is 989 cases, and that 26 of the 27 deaths in the county were of people between the ages of 60-100+. “This underscores the need to protect the most vulnerable as well as ourselves by staying at home,” said Dr. Valerie A. Arkoosh, Chair, Montgomery County Board of Commissioners.
 
Even if you feel well and are asymptomatic, you should still stay home and stay safe. "Staying at home doesn’t mean making a daily stop at the grocery store because you need to get out of the house. Staying at home means you must stay at home," said PA Governor Tom Wolf referring to his April 1, 2020 stay at home order. Individuals may leave their residence only to perform certain life sustaining activities.
