Did you know there are different collection methods for COVID-19 testing? The county health department is using midturbinate swabs which are not as invasive as the commonly discussed nasopharyngeal swabs. This 7 minute video highlights the midturbinate site around minute 5:27 and demonstrates each type of collection to help you know what to expect when calling for a free curbside testing appointment. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=78y8zriyK24&feature=youtu.be

Much is unknown about how the virus that causes COVID-19 spreads. We believe it spreads mostly from person to person through respiratory droplets produced when someone who is sick coughs or sneezes.

You can help prevent the spread of COVID-19 and protect the community by wearing a mask.

You can help prevent the spread of COVID-19 by wearing a face covering, but the face covering type and how you wear it both matter. Keep in mind:

- A loose-fitting face covering or one worn below the nose is much less effective than one that fits snugly.
- A well-fitting, breathable face covering made with a few layers of tightly woven fabric protects best.

Cover smart. Do your part. Slow the spread.
