Central District Health (CDH) and Southwest District Health (SWDH) support Governor Little’s extension
of the Statewide Order and do not encourage or condone businesses to operate outside of the
parameters of the statewide Order in place through the end of April 2020. We encourage all businesses
within our districts to abide by the Order and utilize the coming weeks to plan for safe and appropriate
business operations, when the Governor indicates this is allowable.
CDH and SWDH are providing guidance for businesses to begin building their plans for ensuring the
safety of employees and patrons.
