The Paris-Lamar County Health District urges all Lamar County residents to adhere to the CDC and State of Texas guidelines to help stop this highly contagious virus.

Individuals may not be in a group larger than ten individuals (including those within the individual’s household). Within these groups, individuals should, to the extent possible, minimize in-person contact with others, not in the individual’s home. Reducing in-person contact includes maintaining six feet of separation from individuals. When keeping six feet of separation is not feasible, you should utilize other methods to slow the spread of COVID-19, such as wearing masks or face coverings, washing or sanitizing hands frequently, and avoiding sharing utensils or other everyday objects.
