10/15/20 PRESS RELEASE
Nick Goshe, CEO Sedgwick County Health Center:
Over the last few weeks Sedgwick County Health Center has begun seeing an uptick in COVID positive cases. As of this writing we have several active cases in the county at present. All of these cases currently have been healthy enough to stay at home without the need for advanced medical care. The vast majority of people are recovering at home from this virus and now is the time to stay calm, continue practicing social distancing and take measures to avoid getting sick or spreading to others. It is up to each of us to protect ourselves and our most vulnerable populations by not giving this virus or any virus a chance to spread. You can help slow the spread of COVID-19, influenza and other viruses by:
• Wearing a mask.
• Staying home if you’re sick; keeping your children home if they are sick.
• Avoiding large gatherings.
• Avoiding close contact with anyone who has cold or flu-like symptoms.
• Practicing good hygiene. Thoroughly and frequently wash your hands with soap and water; in the absence of soap and water, use hand-sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol.
• Cleaning and disinfecting frequently touched objects and surfaces.
• Increasing distance between people to six feet.
• Avoiding unnecessary travel.
• If the health department contacts you for contact tracing a positive COVID case follow their guidance.
To help answer the question of who needs tested and how do they obtain testing for COVID. The Health Center can and will test those that have symptoms of COVID as long as they first receive a medical exam or those that present with an order for a COVID test by another doctor. However, we are not a drive-up facility that tests everyone regardless of symptoms without first receiving a doctor’s order. If this is the case and you just want to be tested even though you are not currently experiencing any symptoms you can contact Salud Family Health Centers in Sterling at 303-697-2583. They are performing general public testing each week following the states protocols. Here at the Health Center we are not recommending that everyone gets a test at this time.
If you have questions or concerns, my direct line is 970-463-6163. I will do my best to get back with you in a timely manner and address your questions or concerns.

Jacob J. & Ann B. Memorial Assisted Living Center
The Jacob J. and Anne B. Walter Memorial Living Center’s initial plan in 1997 included the common areas and 10 units with the intention that an additional 10 units be built in the next two or three years. A local farmer, Jacob Walter, donated over $480,000, which allowed all 20 units to be constructed as part of the initial project. In recognition of the Mr. Walter’s generous gift that was in memory of his late wife, Anne, the Board of Trustees named the facility the Jacob J. and Anne B. Walter Memorial Living Center. Mr. Walter passed away in 1999, but was able to see the project completed.
