The GCCHD would like to remind everyone that although social distancing is not easy, especially this time of year as we are all eager to get outside and reconnect with the community, your efforts to do the right thing do not go unnoticed. Individual choices, although they’re not often the easy ones, make a big impact on community wellbeing.
Wearing face coverings, keeping your distance and washing your hands are all small steps that we can take on our own to make a big collective impact.
The health department call center is open seven days a week from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. at 406-548-0123 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org to answer any questions about COVID-19.
