Preventing COVID-19 Spread in Communities

  • Preventing COVID-19 Spread in Communities

    Protect yourself and your community from getting and spreading respiratory illnesses like coronavirus disease 2019.

    Americans should be prepared for the possibility of a COVID-19 outbreak in their community. The community can take measures to reduce the spread of COVID-19. Everyone has a role to play in getting ready and staying healthy.

    Currently a vaccine is not available for COVID-19. Until a vaccine is developed, community-based interventions such as school dismissals, event cancellations, social distancing, and creating employee plans to work remotely can help slow the spread of COVID-19.  Individuals can practice everyday prevention measures like frequent hand washing, staying home when sick, and covering coughs and sneezesClick below to learn about steps to take before, during, and after any community spread of COVID-19.

Fresh Fruits & Vegetables Program

  • Ben Hill County Nutrition Department is happy to announce we have became a recipient of the USDA Fresh Fruits & Vegetables Program. For the last two weeks students have been given the option of  fresh Georgia Grown peaches, strawberries, blueberries, tomatoes, and yellow squash. We are looking forward to seeing what other GA grown items we can have available to our students during the changing seasons.
