COVID-19 Presentation - 12 March, 2020

NC Division of Services for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing shares
a special message about taking care of yourself during COVID-19 outbreak. 

Cumberland County Public Health is partnering with the N.C. Department of Health and Human Services and following the guidance of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, which has been working to implement a containment strategy within the U.S. To date, those efforts have been successful, but given the current situation and the continued spread of COVID-19, the CDC has recommended more stringent guidance on containment – and is also preparing for the likelihood of spread within U.S. communities.

We continue to monitor the situation and are working to prepare our community as advised by the CDC. Cumberland County Public Health will continue to work in lockstep with the CDC, the N.C. Department of Health and Human Services, and our partners on a coordinated public health response should one need to be implemented as a result of COVID-19.

For up-to-date information on COVID-19, visit the CDC’s website.
