LATEST COVID INFORMATION FROM Carbon County Public Health (posted 07.23.21)

District Nurse Nikki Thorn and I met with Carbon County Public Health (CCPH) last Friday to hear the latest Covid information and to ask several questions.  Amanda Brown (CCPH), shared several items of importance that I want to pass along.  First, Carbon County will have a new Health Officer – Dr. Ables from Rawlins.  He’s been in Rawlins for some time so many of you may know him.  We are looking forward to working with him on school and county health issues.

  • CCPH indicated that future masks mandates are not planned for the coming year J
  • Regarding quarantines, they will continue to work with school health personnel and administration in the coming year to make those decisions.  Direct contact with a positive case will still require quarantines similar to last school year.  We will continue to attempt to minimize direct contact by trying to distance and remain in cohorts as much as practical.  The big news is that ANYONE FULLY VACCINATED WILL BE EXEMPT FROM QUARANTINES DUE TO DIRECT CONTACT WITH A POSITIVE PERSON

Anyone who is not fully vaccinated and wishes to get vaccinated – or to get their students over 12 years old vaccinated, please call CCPH (307-328-2607).  Carbon County Public Health will have a walk-in clinic on Wednesday, July 28th from 10 AM – 2 PM in Rawlins.  Another option is to call the Rawlins Walmart (307-417-3058); press #1 for Covid vaccine information; you will talk to a person who will ask for your zip code and then direct you to the nearest Walmart and set up an appointment to be vaccinated; walk-ins are accepted at most Walmarts – if the pharmacy dept. is open and they have vaccines available – but setting an appointment is the safest.  I know of folks who have set up appointments in Rawlins.

First day for students is August 23rd.
