Confirmed cases of COVID-19 are emerging in densely populated areas across the country.

This outbreak has proven to be very difficult to contain, largely due to extended incubation times averaging around 5 days, and around 80% of those infected not showing obvious symptoms.

If we wait until cases are confirmed we've likely allowed it to spread unchecked for over 5 days. It could already be spreading in the community. Let's do what we can to help prevent Gaston County from becoming a hotspot.

The short term implications of acting preemptively would be much less than if we 'wait-and-see' with something that is likely not visible until well on it's way to being out of control.
