We have learned that up to 80% of people with coronavirus have mild or no symptoms but can still be contagious and able to unknowingly spread the virus to others. If you would like to find out if you are currently infected with the virus while asymptomatic, you can be tested. Finding people who are infected with the virus but have no symptoms is a way to help control the spread of the virus and keep others safe. Widespread testing and control of the virus will help us to know when it is safe to proceed with the county reopening plan and planning for school reopening.
Have a safe summer,
