ALPENA, Mich. — District Health Department (DHD) No. 4 is reminding residents of the importance of staying home to save lives. In the event it becomes necessary to leave your home, guidance has shifted for individuals wearing cloth face coverings, which can slow the spread of coronavirus.
Growing evidence suggests the virus can spread:
• Before people show symptoms (pre-symptomatic) and
• From people who have the virus but never show symptoms (asymptomatic).
Cloth face coverings help prevent spread of COVID-19 in these situations. There are many examples of simple, no sew cloth face covering options.
Today, the department is reporting zero confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Alpena County. Following is the latest data released by DHD4 at 4:05 p.m.
