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 hand frequently, and avoiding sharing utensils or other everyday objects.
