Daily News

The Crawford County Health Department issued new directives Friday to increase efforts to minimize the spread of the coronavirus and other illnesses.

Businesses not listed as an essential service, such as a hospital, pharmacy, grocery store, gas station, bank, auto store or veterinary clinic, and are not able to practice social distancing must close until further notice.

Hair and nail salons were ordered closed by the end of business Friday.

Gas stations will only be permitted to serve prepackaged food only. No self-serve items such as soda fountain dispensers, coffee stations, food warmers or self-serve food cases. Customers will not be allowed to use dining areas and no loitering will be permitted in the buildings.

Gas station workers are encouraged to keep the flow of people moving in and out quickly and customers are encouraged to pay at the pumps rather than go inside.

Retain and convenience stores were told to continue practicing social distancing, especially while waiting to check out.

Churches are recommended to stream services online and avoid attendance of 10 or more.

Fundraisers, weddings, parties and community should be postponed until further notice. Residents are encouraged to avoid gathering in parks and maintain social distancing.

Liquor stores can offer drive-through service only. If no drive-through available, curb side service should be offered within licensing requirements.

Day cares are considered an essential service, but must follow screening processes and practice social distancing with no more than 10 in a group and remain in the same group each day.

Volunteers from school districts and elsewhere who are delivering food items and supplies should make arrangement to leave deliveries outside closed doors rather than making direct contact.

Anyone with questions or concerns can contact the Crawford County Health Department at 544-8798.
