July 23, 2021 - On June 15th California retired the Blueprint for a Safer Economy, which led to increased population mobility, increasing risk for spread of COVID-19. Additionally, the emergence of the Delta variant across the country has also increased COVID-19 transmission. Locally, Mariposa County Health and Human Services Public Health Branch is seeing a significant increase in COVID-19 cases over the past week, and we anticipate additional cases.
In response to this situation and to limit the risk to the Mariposa County public, Mariposa County Public Health recommends the following:
- Wearing masks in all indoor public settings, regardless of vaccination status.
- Those who have close contact with the public, especially visitors to the area, should get tested for COVID-19 every 14 – 28 days.
- If you are sick, stay at home and schedule a COVID-19 test.
- Get vaccinated if you have not done so already, finish the vaccination series if not yet complete.
Additionally, cooperation with Public Health case investigations, contact tracing, isolation and quarantine, will significantly reduce the risk to our community, limit the spread of disease and is greatly appreciated.
The above measures will have limited impact on our economy while slowing the spread of COVID-19 and other respiratory viruses in Mariposa County. Public Health would like to thank everyone in advance for their cooperation as we all work together to protect ourselves, our families, friends, co-workers, and community.
