The health of our employees, citizens, businesses and visitors is of the utmost importance to the City.  Each day we learn more and more about the COVID-19 virus and methods that should be used to prevent the spread.  As we continue practicing good hygiene (washing hands, cover coughs/sneezes, staying home when ill, avoid touching eyes, nose, mouth with unwashed hands) we must also limit our exposure to the virus by adhering to social distancing (3 foot radius, limit gatherings to 25 people or less).  As of March 16, 2020, County Health Officials have reported 0 cases in Baker County.  Our vulnerable population is still at risk and County Officials are working to together to make sure they get the services needed.

In many of our lifetimes, we have not been faced with this situation and therefore, find ourselves fearful.  It is important to not panic and have compassion.  It is important to adhere to the recommended precautions.  And, it is important to remember that this is temporary. The more we are able to do today, the faster we can resume our day to day activities as we know them. 

Baker City’s emergency personnel have met and developed policies and procedures to ensure that they are taking necessary measures to care for themselves and the citizens of Baker City.  Our partners in education, healthcare and government are meeting on a continual basis to make sure that the needs of our communities are being met and local businesses are working hard to adjust how they deliver goods and services.
