Monroe County Executive, Adam Bello, and Director of the Monroe County Health Department, Dr. Mike Mendoza, held an informative meeting for local government officials on the novel corona virus.

Guidance and resources are available here:  https://www2.monroecounty.gov/health-coronavirus

We would like to stress, as Dr. Mendoza stated, all guidance from the county, state, and federal governments about how to handle pandemic flu are the protocols we should be following for this corona virus.  https://www.cdc.gov/flu/prevent/actions-prevent-flu.htm

Please remember we are talking about people and their families; be patient and kind with one another and as always, practice healthy habits.

  • Wash your hands. 
  • Cover your mouth and nose when you sneeze or cough with your sleeve/elbow. 
  • Avoid close contact with those who are ill. 
  • Stay home if you are sick.
