Dickinson County Healthcare is a strong community partner in helping to stop the spread of COVID-19. We know there are many questions in our community about the distribution and access to the COVID-19 vaccine based on the phases established by state and federal agencies. Phase 1B started in Michigan on January 11. Please take a couple of minutes to watch the video with Dickinson County Healthcare ICU nurse Pam Faccio, RN, to help answer some of the most frequent questions.

TO PROTECT YOURSELF AND OTHERS FROM COVID-19

Wash your hands often - Scrub with soap and water for 20 seconds or rub your hands with an alcohol based hand sanitizer for 15 seconds.
Don’t touch your face - Especially avoid contact with your eyes, nose and mouth.
Practice social distancing whenever possible - This means avoiding close contact with others.
Stay home if you are sick.
Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue - Dispose of the tissue immediately afterward. Use your shirt sleeve, not your hands, if no tissue is available.
