COVID-19 RESOLUTION 20-11-02R

Resolution No. 20-11-02R was passed by the Aberdeen City Council with a vote of 5-4 at the November 2, 2020 City Council meeting. This resolution outlines measures for wearing of masks within the city limits.  The message to residents within the City of Aberdeen is that if we all do our part, we will be able to slow the spread of COVID and hopefully decrease deaths from the virus. The use of face coverings, while not the only solution, is a non-intrusive way to reduce the spread of COVID-19.  Masking, combined with physical distancing, limits on the number of persons engaging in certain enhanced risk activities together or gathered in higher risk locations, and frequent hand washing, is crucial to reducing illnesses, hospitalization, and deaths associated with the virus.

This resolution shall take effect immediately and it shall remain in effect until the underlying South Dakota public health emergency has ended unless it is sooner modified or terminated by the City Council.

FLUSHING YOUR WATER PIPES

With businesses reopening it is a good time to remind everyone about something often taken for granted, Water.

When you return to your Business or home after a lengthy period of being away, remember that water has been sitting in your pipes for the time your business/home has remained unused. 

It is likely that, while water has sat in the pipes unused, compounds will have built up.  When you restore the water flow to your household, these compounds become re-suspended and may cause some water discoloration.

Other issues such as taste and odor are also likely to occur (commonly from debris sitting in the pipes), as well as sudden spurts of water due to the release of trapped air. These are all quite normal and, while not ideal, are not harmful.

What is Harmful is the chance that over time the disinfection properties in the water diminish.  Warm water pipes may be cooler than optimal both of these conditions may have allowed bacteria to grow inside the plumbing.

It is recommended that you flush your water pipes and allow time for the water to clear itself.

How do I flush my pipes?

Follow the steps below to flush your pipes:

1.     Flush ALL hot water taps

Begin the flushing procedure by opening the hot water taps in your bathroom(s). Open ALL hot water lavatory (sink) fixtures, hot water bath fixtures, and any other hot water fixtures, such as kitchens, wet bars, etc. Run these hot water fixtures for at least 5 to 15 minutes.  Ensure that each tap has the hottest water coming from it.

2.     Flush ALL cold water taps for 5 minutes

Once the hot water tank and hot water piping have been flushed, open ALL of the cold water fixtures, flush each toilet at least one time. Run these cold water fixtures for at least five minutes. Shut water off after five minutes. This does include the water in your refrigerator water dispenser.

3.     Flush ALL remaining Appliances and Faucets

Open any remaining fixtures such as hose bibs, external faucets or fixtures not used for drinking for at least five minutes to finish the plumbing system flushing. Take additional steps to remove water from other appliances. This includes:

  • Ice Makers
  • Oral, Medical or Health Care Devices
  • Filters, point of use and whole house
  • Water Softeners
  • Washing Machines
  • Humidifiers
  • Dishwashers

After flushing all of the other plumbing, let the ice maker container fill up completely and discard this ice and clean the container before replacing.   In addition, the screens on faucets may need to be taken off and cleaned.  Where performance seems impaired, consult the operating manual for cleaning or replacing the associated filter.   Maintenance is important.

Discoloration may occur during flushing, this is expected and not a health issue. Any lingering smell, which is expected, is not a health issue.   With any concerns feel free to contact Public works at 626-7010

ONE POSITIVE CASE OF COVID-19 REPORTED AT DEMKOTA RANCH BEEF IN ABERDEEN

South Dakota state health officials have confirmed one (1) positive case of COVID-19 at Demkota Ranch Beef located in Aberdeen. The current situation will be closely monitored and new information will be released as it becomes available; the Emergency Operations Center will be assisting with coordination and implementation of those efforts. 

In light of this new confirmed case, this is not the time for panic but rather a time to evaluate our individual efforts. Washing our hands, social distancing, regular cleaning, and covering coughs and sneezes. These simple actions have remarkable results in the effort to flatten the curve.

GUIDELINES FOR PLACING AN EMERGENCY CALL TO 911 OR A NON-EMERGENCY CALL TO 626-7911

COVID-19 has changed daily functions and routines for all of us. The Brown County Communications Center (BCCC) (our local 9-1-1 answering point) is following guidelines from the CDC and the S.D. Dept. of Health to modify their operations to include new criteria. 

When placing an emergency call to 911, or a non-emergency call to 626-7911, please be prepared to answer the following questions:

  • Does anyone present (in your household) have a fever, cough, sore throat, or been experiencing shortness of breath?

                  “Anyone present” may include people who live in your house or are there visiting.

If you answer yes to any of these, you may be asked additional screening questions;

  • Have you traveled recently?
  • Have you been in contact with anyone experiencing the same symptoms?
  • How long have you had these symptoms?

These questions are both necessary and critical to keep our public safety operators / dispatchers healthy. With this information, BCCC is able to notify first responders of the proper level of personal protection equipment needed on scene.

Your cooperation is greatly appreciated.

SOCIAL DISTANCING IS WORKING

Brown County Emergency Management would like to remind everyone that social distancing remains incredibly important during this time.

Even though we can’t say for sure when we will reach the finish line, we will get through this, by remaining strong and adhering to the practices outlined by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention Prevent Getting Sick:

  • Clean your hands often
  • Avoid close contact (social distancing)

MARCH 17, 2020

March 17, 2020 pm Press Release:  As we continue to monitor COVID-19 within Brown County and throughout the State, the best method for personal protection remains social distancing and increased personal hygiene. Stockpiling personal hygiene items and cleaning supplies only prevents someone else from being able to care for themselves and their families.

Personal hygiene includes:

  • Washing hands, especially after touching any frequently used items or surfaces. 
  • Avoid touching your face.
  • Disinfect high-touch areas and frequently used items as often as possible.
  • Contain sneezing or coughs into a tissue or use the inside of your elbow.
  • For recommendations regarding social distancing, please refer to the guidelines set forth by the CDC.

In accordance with the latest reports from the CDC, if you are sick you should wear a facemask when around other people (e.g., sharing a room or vehicle) and before you enter a healthcare provider’s office. If you are not able to wear a facemask (e.g., because it causes trouble breathing), then you should do your best to cover your coughs or sneezes, and people who are caring for you should wear a facemask if they enter your room.

If you are NOT sick: You do not need to wear a facemask unless you are caring for someone who is sick (and they are not able to wear a facemask).

Facemask supplies are limited both locally and nationally and need to be reserved for caregivers and healthcare workers.

For additional information about any of these topics, please visit cdc.gov or covid.sd.gov

March 17, 2020 am Press Release:  As our local health care organizations continue to monitor and prepare for any potential needs related to the COVID-19 situation, they ask that you do your part to help to the community at large and take the following steps when seeking healthcare.

Individuals who utilize Sanford facilities for their health care and feel they may have been exposed to COVID-19 or who are displaying symptoms are asked to:

  • Call your local clinic or log into MyChart to utilize Sanford’s e-visit option

For the safety of all patients and staff, local facilities will be allowing only one designated visitor per patient for their entire stay or visit hospital or clinics. Additional visitors will be asked to return to their vehicle and not wait in the waiting room. Anyone with obvious symptoms of respiratory illness, such as coughing, will not be allowed to visit.
