As a reminder, everyone who tests positive for COVID-19 will be contacted by MCHD, but this may take several days due to the abundance of cases. MCHD continues to ask Mercer County residents to take precautions to protect loved ones, especially those who are most vulnerable.  By limiting attendance of large social gatherings, wearing a mask, and staying at home when sick, people can avoid transmitting COVID-19 to those who are immuno compromised or have other underlying health problems.

The MCHD office will be closed on Veterans Day (November 11, 2020).
