Clay County Public Health Community Recovery Plan
- High-risk persons should continue to stay home except for essential activities. Anyone who is sick should also stay at home.
- Wear a face mask/covering when interacting with others outside your home.
- Always maintain physical distancing (six feet) from anyone you do not live with.

The goal is to not return to a stay-at-home order, however, if at any time COVID-19 disease rates demonstrate the need to return to those measures, the public health order will be amended.
