Evidence Of Community Transmission Of COVID-19 In Coconino County

Coconino County Health and Human Services officials have found evidence of community transmission of COVID-19 in Coconino County. Community transmission happens when there are confirmed cases of COVID-19 and there is no source of infection identified in some of the cases and it cannot be directly traced back to a known exposure. Due to the identification of community transmission, and to reduce the spread of COVID-19, health officials are reinforcing the importance of practicing social distancing, frequent hand washing and staying home when sick. The county is also disbanding the specimen collection site at Fort Tuthill County Park. There will only be one site operating from 10 a.m.- 3 p.m. at the Coconino Community College East Campus on Fourth Street in Flagstaff, while supplies last. People experiencing mild respiratory illness, such as a slight fever or cough, are instructed to stay at home, monitor symptoms, contact their healthcare provider if needed and distance themselves from others as much as possible. Individuals experiencing serious symptoms should contact their healthcare provider for medical advice.
