After The Holiday, Watching The Numbers: COVID-19 Q & A

Covid-19 virus
Covid-19 virus

Health officials in many jurisdictions put out warnings about gatherings over Labor Day weekend, concerned that people would gather in big groups and spread the virus that causes COVID-19. Jackson County Public Health joined the chorus of warnings.

Dr. Jim Shames, the county Medical Director, is keeping an eye on the case numbers, which could rise in a few days... or not. Dr. Shames joins us once a week to answer questions about the virus and its intended containment.

Join in with your questions at 800-838-3760, or email in advance to JX@jeffnet.org.
