PRESS RELEASE CITY OF PARIS, LAMAR COUNTY - WATCH THE MEETING VIDEO HERE
Paris, Texas • March 16, 2020 • The City of Paris, Lamar County, and members of the local medical community have come together to assure the citizens of Paris and Lamar County that we are working together and are prepared to deal with any local outbreak of the novel Coronavirus. As of today (3/16/2020), there have been no confirmed cases of the virus in our community.
Paris emergency service personnel are following special protocols designed to protect the community while still providing necessary services. We are in daily contact with state officials and receive the latest information concerning the virus.
Local medical personnel at Paris Regional Medical Center, the Paris-Lamar County Health District, private clinics, and other local providers are coordinating their efforts to detect, report, and address any virus cases which may arise.
One of the key components in successfully fighting the virus is the community itself. Everyone should practice the following steps:
With the general public’s help, we can avoid a large scale outbreak of the virus and prevent any chance of overwhelming our local medical capabilities.
In addition, we ask that the public not repeat or share unsubstantiated claims on social media. Instead, wait for official announcements and reports from the agencies involved in controlling the virus.
Working together, the people of Paris and Lamar County can minimize this threat to our community and bounce back stronger than ever before.
