“COVID-19 is not the flu or a common cold; it’s a disease that is wreaking havoc in our community and across the world,” said Suzanne Wright, Davie County Health and Human Services Director. “Symptoms of COVID-19 do not look the same for everyone. Outcomes do not look the same for everyone. What has to be the same for everyone is social distancing – or staying six feet away from each other at all times, frequent handwashing and use of hand sanitizer, keeping hands away from your face, cleaning surfaces regularly, and staying home and away from others as much as possible. If you are sick or have been exposed to someone who is, stay home. The spread of COVID-19 starts and ends with you.”
