The Florida Department of Health in Citrus County (DOH-Citrus) is urging members of the public to wear cloth face coverings to prevent the spread of COVID-19. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has posted guidance on cloth face coverings to its website: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/prevent-getting-sick/cloth-face-cover.html According to the CDC, a “significant portion of individuals with coronavirus” do not experience symptoms. As a result, these individuals can unknowingly spread the virus to those around them.
“In light of this new evidence, CDC recommends wearing cloth face coverings in public settings where other social distancing measures are difficult to maintain (e.g., grocery stores and pharmacies) especially in areas of significant community-based transmission,” writes the CDC.
The Inverness Big Bass Classic Tournament, and the Taste of Inverness foodie festival have been cancelled. Originally postponed, the decision to move forward to cancel the events altogether was made due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The city will maintain adherence to CDC recommendations for social distancing, which includes avoiding large crowds. The city and its sponsors are looking forward to the return of these annual festivals in March and April of 2021, respectively.
