Updated 2022 Mitigation Plan in place
March 2022 CDC COVID-19 prevention steps and new community levels. COVID-19 by County | CDC
The new guidelines have factors that include (copied from website):
“COVID-19 Community Levels are a new tool to help communities decide what prevention steps to take based on the latest data. Levels can be low, medium, or high and are determined by looking at hospital beds being used, hospital admissions, and the total number of new COVID-19 cases in an area. Take precautions to protect yourself and others from COVID-19 based on the COVID-19 Community Level in your area.”
CLC has a unique population, we have the elderly, children, medical providers caring for vulnerable populations, people caring for their elderly parents, people with unique health challenges and a slew of healthy people. While our job is not to prevent the spread of COVID it is to create an environment where all people feel safe, valued, and cared for. We also have a unique environment that promotes the spread of an airborne disease, our exhales are not normal when we are singing and therefore, we expel a lot of air and aerosols into the air which spread disease quickly.
Council approved the following plan on March 7, 2022.
Testing is a key way to slow the spread of COVID-19. You can obtain a test for home usage at USPS. It is helpful to get them now so you have tests readily available when you need them. You can also get tested at several sites in Fairbanks including by the old Kmart on Airport way and at UAF.
