COVID-19 Preparedness & Response
The Centers for Disease Control (CDC), Georgia Department of Public Health (DPH), and the Coastal Health District are closely monitoring an outbreak of COVID-19, a respiratory illness caused by a novel (new) coronavirus. The virus was first detected in Wuhan City, China in December 2019, and continues to expand to other countries, including the United States.
Symptoms of COVID-19 may resemble the common cold or seasonal flu, which is a far greater risk this time of year.
The best way to prevent infection with any respiratory virus is to use the same preventative strategies used during a normal cold and flu season:
- get a flu shot,
- wash hands regularly,
- cover coughs and sneezes, and
- stay home when experiencing symptoms of illness until they resolve.
It is important to remember that viruses cannot target people from specific populations, ethnicities, or racial backgrounds and this type of stigma should be avoided. The CDC shares more information about stigma related to COVID-19 and how to prevent it.
Camden County residents should be prepared for the possibility of a COVID-19 outbreak in our community. Residents can take measures to reduce the spread of COVID-19.
Currently a vaccine or drug is not available for COVID-19. Individuals can practice everyday prevention measures like frequent hand washing, staying home when sick, and covering coughs and sneezes.
Information for Faith-Based Organizations
The Camden County Emergency Management Agency (EMA) is continuing to monitor the risk COVID-19 (Coronavirus) will have on our community. As a result of these changing conditions, you are strongly encouraged to limit the physical gatherings at your church services for members with increased health risks.
Older adults and people who have underlying medical conditions, including, but not limited to compromised immune systems, heart disease, lung disease, or diabetes seem to be at higher risk for developing more serious complications from COVID-19. In person gatherings, like church services, have an increased opportunity of spreading illnesses.
We are calling on you to be responsive to the needs of Camden County residents including physical and health concerns. This is not to cause fear, but a call to lead our community safely. The needs of our most vulnerable residents are paramount as we continue to see the ultimate impact that COVID-19 will have on our community. Please ensure that those members of your congregation with health issues are supported by checking on them and by assisting with their needs.
For more information on COVID-19 and high risk groups, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) website.
