“We want to reinforce the importance of social distancing, stay home or at least 6 feet away from others. We need everyone’s help to stop the spread of COVID-19 in our community,” states Public Health Director, Frank Kruppa.

TCHD will continue to update these numbers daily on the Health Department’s website. We will no longer send media releases about additional information regarding numbers or confirmed cases.
