City of McCall sends out COVID-19 advisory ahead of the holiday

The City of McCall sent out a COVID-19 advisory ahead of the holiday weekend.

McCall has collaborated with Cascade Medical Center, St. Luke’s McCall, McCall Police department and McCall Fire.

“The collaboration is a continued effort to show our commitment to preventing the spread by following Central District Health’s most recent advisory,” the press release said. “…Central District Health advises to “avoid non-essential travel” and to “avoid social gatherings, including among family members who do not live in your household.” During these unique times, we respectfully ask that you honor these guidelines and protect yourself and your family.”

Emphasized in the press release is the limited medical care in Valley County, with options being St. Luke’s McCall and Cascade Medical and some emergency transportation services. In recent weeks, Valley County has also seen a spike in confirmed coronavirus cases, with 226.

“Our organizations maintain hope and are encouraged by a vaccine on the horizon, but recognize we have a long road ahead,” the press release said. “Stay the course, be resilient, and join together for a common goal to remain healthy. Please follow these guidelines so we can provide everyone, locals and visitors alike, with the same level of care in any emergency.”
