Weekly Check-In: Health Department Q & A


Just as political jurisdictions and private businesses announced plans to emerge from shelter-in-place restrictions came word that there could be a high price to pay. Centers For Disease Control and Prevention head Robert Redfield warned that a second wave of COVID-19 could be more devastating than the first, because it could coincide with flu season.

The news and the desire to restore some sense of normalcy leave a lot of people confused. So we continue our weekly visits with health officers from our region.

Dr. Jim Shames from Jackson County Health and Human Services returns to answer questions.
