COVID-19 Emergency

National, State and Local Emergencies are still in effect.

Updated Oct 19, 2022

The State Emergency is scheduled to end on Feb 28, 2023.

The CDC guidelines classifiy individual counties with a "red/green/yellow" status (based on hospitalization, infection rate ...)

6/10/22: Lake is in the GREEN (Low Community Risk) Category. 
Warning: we are a small County, so just a few cases (one household) could move us from one level to another.
 
Covid19.gov Portal for Lake County has some good guidelines. 

Also see  CDC Communty Levels and  CDC Community Level Map for details on the current status.

Station policy

The station is periodically reviewing new Covid19 studio protocols. Subject to programmer agreements we can now have two people in the studio at the same time, and one live show can follow another.

How can people protect themselves?

The best way to prevent illness is to be fully vaccinated.  In addition, because of breakthrough cases, avoid being exposed to this virus. The virus is thought to spread mainly from person-to-person between people who are in close contact with one another (within about 6 feet), and as aerosols, throughout a poorly ventilated area. This occurs through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person breaths, talks, coughs or sneezes. These droplets can land in the mouths or noses of people who are nearby or possibly be inhaled into the nose and lungs. Your best protection indoors  is a well-fitting surgical or N95 mask. Cloth masks are better than nothing, but give only slight protection. Older adults and people who have severe underlying chronic medical conditions like heart or lung disease or diabetes seem to be at higher risk for developing more serious complications from COVID-19 illness. Every person has a role to play. So much of protecting yourself and your family comes down to common sense: 

  • Get vaccinated and boosted. 
  • Wear a Surgical or N95  mask in stores or other enclosed spaces.
  • Wash hands with soap and water for 20 seconds.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces daily. If surfaces are dirty, clean them using detergent or soap and water prior to disinfection.
  • Avoid touching eyes, nose or mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Avoid being in the same room as people who are sick.
  • Stay away from work, school or other people if you become sick with respiratory symptoms like fever and cough, or a sudden loss of taste and smell.
  • Following guidance from public health officials.

Please consult with your health care provider about additional steps you may be able to take to protect yourself.
