COVID-19: Facts not Fear
COVID-19: Facts not Fear

WHAT IS COVID-19?

COVID-19 is a virus strain that has only spread in people since December 2019.  Health experts are concerned because little is known about this new virus and it has the potential to cause severe illness and pneumonia.

how does covid-19 spread?

Health experts are still learning the details about how this new coronavirus spreads.  The virus is thought to spread mainly from person-to-person:

  • Between people who are in close contact (within about 6 feet) with an ill person.
  • Through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes.
  • It also may be possible that a person can get COVID-19 by touching a surface or object that has the virus on it, then touching their mouth, nose or eyes.

who is at risk for covid-19?

Certain people are at a higher risk of becoming sicker or seriously ill with COVID-19 including:

  • Older adults
  • People with serious chronic medical conditions such as heart disease, diabetes and lung disease

how to protect yourself from getting covid-19?

If you have plans to travel, follow the CDC's guidance: CDC.gov/Travel

Right now, there are no additional precautions recommended for the general public.  Steps you can take to prevent spread of flu and the common cold will also help prevent COVID-19:

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water.  If not available, use hand sanitizer.
  • Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when coughing.
  • Stay home if you are sick and contact your healthcare provider.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Avoid contact with people who are sick.

REGARDING RECYCLING IN CRAWFORD COUNTY

by Chelsea Goodwin

REGARDING RECYCLING IN CRAWFORD COUNTY

Due to the rising costs associated with recycling and the drop in the value of recyclable material, the Crawford County Recycling Council has determined it to be potentially more economical for each township/city to determine the course of their own recycling efforts.  Each municipality will decide whether or not to continue recycling and whether or not to continue the county recycling surcharge in order to fund the recycling program.

Grayling Township Recycling Center will accept recyclable material from residents of Grayling Township ONLY. Residents will be required to show their green and white compactor pass to enter and use the compacting/recycling services at the center.  The recycling center hours will remain the same.  This policy change impacts recycling ONLY.  Trash removal will remain the same in all municipalities (township/city).  Contact your municipality with any questions.

The City is currently researching options to offer recycling for city residents.  Residents will be notified as soon as the information is available.
