COVID-19 Pandemic

The Spokane Regional Health District (SRHD)--- supported by Spokane County Department of Emergency Management, the City of Spokane and other Inland area Cities--- is taking action to protect the health of our Inland community during the current COVID-19 outbreak.

Below are some steps that individuals can take to minimize the risk of infection:

  • Adhere to the Washington State and local guidelines guidelines
  • Wear a mask when in public spaces, and when 6 feet of distance between others is not possible
  • Wash hands often and well, with soap and water, or use hand sanitizer containing at least 60% alcohol
  • Stay home when sick
  • Cover coughs and sneezes with the inside of the elbow
  • Avoid touching eyes, nose, or mouth
  • Keep surfaces clean
  • Take care of yourself: get plenty of sleep, exercise, drink more water and eat nutritious food
  • Practice physical distancing by staying at least 6 feet apart from others, to help stop the spread of the virus
