The Platte County Health Department is monitoring the COVID-19 situation locally with all of their regional partners, including schools, law enforcement, fire/EMS officials, emergency management, local officials and hospitals. Planning and protocol discussions with these groups are underway and will continue moving forward.
There have been discussions surrounding large scale events and gatherings as well as preparations that need to be made to prepare for more testing when it becomes available.
They encourage everyone in Platte County to take precautions and stay informed. Because not all social media pages and websites are providing accurate information, they suggest going to your local health department and other official pages of the Missouri Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS), Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO). The Platte County Health Department will continue to use their official social media pages to get the latest information out to everyone in our county when it becomes available.
The official websites for the health organizations listed above are:
- Platte County Health Department: www.plattecountyhealthdept.com
- Missouri DHHS: www.health.mo.gov
- CDC: www.cdc.gov or www.coronavirus.gov
- WHO: www.who.int
