To expand testing in Nyssa, the Malheur County Health Department (MCHD) is partnering with Valley Family Health Care to provide free testing Monday, October 12th from 10:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. at the LDS Church on Park Avenue. There are a number of cases connected to outbreaks MCHD is investigating recently. To prevent additional spread, anyone in the community is encouraged to be tested. Without testing, people are more likely to infect others before they are symptomatic. Many people who are COVID-19 positive never show symptoms, so it’s very important that everyone continue to follow the precautions we know keep us safe:

  • Wash your hands often
  • Keep 6′ distance from others
  • Disinfect commonly used surfaces frequently
  • Isolate with symptoms or if you test positive
  • Stay home if you’re exposed to positive case
  • Wear a face covering whenever you’re around people not in your household
  • Consider wearing a face covering in your household if someone is symptomatic, positive, or if there are people who have underlying health conditions and are more vulnerable to severe cases
  • Avoid large gatherings
