Press Release (2) – COVID-19 – SPANISH

A las 8 a.m. el 17 de marzo de 2020,
El juez del condado de Orange, John Gothia, emitio una declaracion de desastre y una orden de emergencia limitar la exposicion de nuestros ciudadanos al coronavirus COVID-19 y frenar la propagacion de la enfermedad. Los alcaldes del condado de Orange apoyan la decision del juez. (Ambos documentos se pueden encontrar en el sitio web del condado http://www.co.orange.tx.us/.) 

Primero, cualquier persona que sospeche que puede haber estado expuesto a COVID-19 debe llamar a su medico o proveedor medico. No vaya al consultorio del medico o al centro medico sin antes llamar. Durante la llamada telefonica, se le haran algunas preguntas para determinar si necesita un examen adicional. Si no tiene un medico o centro medico regular, puede llamar 409-246-5188 para mas informacion sobre los acciones que debe tomar. Segundo, lo que el juez y los alcaldes estan ordenando a todos que hagan es “Administrar los 50”. Esto sigue las recomendaciones del Centro de Control y Prevencion de Enfermedades de ninguna reunion de mas de 50 personas en un intento por limitar la posible propagacion de COVID-19. Gestionar los 50 es la idea de utilizar una variedad de metodos para limitar el tamano de los grupos por debajo de 50. 

No se cierran negocios, pero se les pide que “administren los 50”. Se solicita a los gerentes de propietarios de negocios y al publico que consideren las formas de mantener a las multitudes por debajo de los 50, tal uso del ventanilla de auto-servicio o hacer negocios en linea. Cada edificio es unico. Las areas mas pequenas tienen menos espacio que las areas mas grandes, por lo que las personas estaran mas juntas en el area mas pequena, o las personas pueden estar separadas con paredes o pasillos de oficina.Por lo tanto, no hay una solucion que cubra cada situacion. Si evertyone considera como “administrar los 50”, deberia haber algunas soluciones viables para alcanzar este objetivo. Se puede encontrar orientacion adicional para “Administrar los 50” en la declaracion de desastre y la orden de emergencia del Condado de Orange. 

Recuerde que si no se siente bien, quedese en casa, no se congregue en multitudes de mas de cincuenta personas y continue monitoreando las noticias locales para actualizaciones

 

No se han confirmado casos de COVID-19 en el Condado de Orange. Vamos a trabajar todos juntos para matenerlo asi.

Press Release (2) – COVID-19

Coronavirus Update
“Manage the 50

March 17, 2020

At 8 am, March 17, 2020, Orange County Judge John Gothia issued a disaster declaration and emergency order to limit the exposure of our citizens to coronavirus COVID-19 and curb the spread of the disease. The Mayors of Orange County support the Judge’s decision.  (Both documents can be found on the County’s website: http://www.co.orange.tx.us/.)

First, anyone who suspects they may have been exposed to COVID-19 should CALL their doctor or medical provider first. Please do not go to the doctor’s office or medical facility without first calling.  During the phone call, you will be asked a few questions to determine if you require further testing.  If you do not have a regular doctor or medical facility, you may call 409-246-5188 for further directions.

Second, what the Judge and Mayors are directing everyone to do is “Manage the 50.”  This follows the Center for Disease Control and Prevention’s recommendation of no mass gatherings over fifty (50) people in an attempt to limit the possible spread of COVID-19.  “Manage the 50” is the idea of using a variety of methods to limit group sizes under 50.

No businesses are being closed but they are asked to “Manage the 50.” Business owners, managers and the public are asked to consider ways to keep crowds under fifty, such as using drive-thru windows, or doing business on-line. Every building is unique. Smaller areas have less room than larger areas so people will be closer together in the smaller area, or people may be separate with office walls or aisles.  Therefore, there is not one solution that will cover every situation.  If everyone considers how to “Manage the 50” there should be some workable solutions to reach this goal.

Additional guidance to “Manage the 50” can be found in Orange County’s disaster declaration and emergency order.

Remember, if you do not feel well, stay home; do not congregate in crowds over fifty people; and continue to monitor the local news outlets for updates to the situation.  

There have been no confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Orange County.  Let’s all work together to keep it that way.

Further information regarding the coronavirus can be found at the websites of the Center of Disease Control and Prevention:  https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/index.html or the Texas Department of State Health Services: https://www.dshs.texas.gov/coronavirus/ or the County of Orange, Texas: http://www.co.orange.tx.us/.
