"Stomach Bug"/Norovirus

The "Stomach Bug" or Norovirus is a very contagious virus that causes vomiting and diarrhea. Anyone can get infected and sick with norovirus.
You can get norovirus from:

- Having direct contact with an infected person
- Consuming contaminated food or water
- Touching contaminated surfaces and then putting your unwashed hands in your mouth
Check out the video to help slow the spread.  If you are sick....stay home.

Community Health Improvement Plan (CHIP)

A community health improvement process uses Community Health Assessment (CHA) data to identify priority issues, develop and implement strategies for action, and establish accountability to ensure measurable health improvement, which are often outlined in the form of a community health improvement plan (CHIP).

We can not complete the CHA process without YOU for responding to our 
Community Health Surveys. Thank you!
