Harrison County's & the City of Uncertain's Coordinated Corona Virus Response

There has been a coordinated effort between Harrison County, City of Marshall, the Marshall-Harrison County Health District, Christus Good Shepherd Medical Center-Marshall, other local authorities (including the City of Uncertain,) and health officials.  The intent is to highlight prevention measures and to provide more sources of information.  Following is some information to help protect you:

  • Practice excellent personal hygiene habits, including handwashing, coughing into tissue or elbow, avoid touching eyes, nose or mouth.  Regularly clean “high touch” surfaces like doorknobs, light switches, table tops, etc.  MASKS REQUIRED in public places within the City of Uncertain.
  • Stay away from people who are ill, especially if you are 60 or older or have underlying health conditions such as diabetes, heart disease, lung disease, or a weakened immune system.
  • Avoid mass gatherings.  Groups of 10 or less only with social distancing of 6 feet.
  • Stay home when you are sick.  Work from home if possible, especially if you are sick or others may be sick at your workplace.  If you think you’ve been exposed, protect your family, neighbors, and others and self-isolate.
  • Do not go to the emergency room unless essential.  If you have symptoms like cough, fever, or other respiratory problems, contact your regular doctor first.  If you think you have the corona virus, contact your doctor on the phone prior to arrival at the doctor’s office.
  • Stay informed and use the following sites:

There will be many people that have the corona virus for only a day or two, completely recover, and never even know what it was.  While this is a serious issue, don’t become fearful.  Please use the guidelines above and treat this as if you’re avoiding the flu.  Even if you have some of the identified symptoms but have no known exposure, you are likely not a candidate even to be tested.

If we have the corona virus in our county, we have protocols in place to take care of the patient.

Harrison County and cooperating agencies will continue to closely monitor this issue.  If an outbreak occurs, we will respond as necessary to protect our residents.  Right now, we are asking everyone to use good judgement and help to prevent this from occurring.
