The Shiawassee County Health Department (SCHD) has been working on preparedness and response planning against the 2019 Novel Coronavirus at a local level. The 2019 Novel Coronavirus is a respiratory virus first identified in Wuhan, Hubei Province, China. SCHD continues to communicate with state and national officials over this virus. According to the Center of Disease Control (CDC), the immediate health risk for Americans remains low.

During this time of year, it is important to take preventative action to avoid spreading respiratory illnesses. CDC recommends the following habits everyday:

• Wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If not available, use hand sanitizer
• Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands
• Avoid close contact with people who are sick
• Stay home from work or school if you are sick
• Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash
• Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipes

NEW EPISODE
Season 3 Episode 1: The Chair - 1.24.20

Two years ago Josh Strickland purchased an antique chair that purportedly spent decades in the old Owosso Post Office. Today a photo was shared in the Historic Owosso Facebook group. In the photo, a man is sitting in a similar chair. While the thread attempts to figure out who is pictured and where in Owosso the photo was taken, one user suggests that it may have been in the old post office.
