With the signing of this order, Judge-Executive Anderson has taken action to better protect our residents. Below, Judge Anderson speaks to the document in his own words, and included is a copy of the order itself.
Our volunteer center waits ready to assist anyone in need in our community. If you find yourself in the at-risk population, unable to comfortably access food or medication, please call for assistance.
Many in our community are inquiring about the availability of tests, and what to do if they believe they may be feeling ill or suffering symptoms of Covid-19. Troy Brooks of Powell Family Health spoke with us to share some information on where we stand and what to do.
Beginning this Tuesday, we will be opening our Powell County Covid Crisis Center. We will feature a dedicated hotline for relevant local information, staffed with volunteers.
Additionally, for our vulnerable population, we will offer pickup and delivery of medications and grocery staples from any of our local grocers. We request that all orders be pre-paid via credit/debit card, or with a gift card, check or money order. Due to public health concerns, we will not be able to accept cash for orders.
We ask that you please contact our facility on Tuesday to place your grocery order in advance, and to make any requests regarding medication pickup. We will deliver medications on Tuesdays and groceries on Wednesdays. This program may expand or be restricted depending on available resources, but your local government is dedicated to ensuring that all of our population feels safe and has their needs met during this difficult time.
We will provide the phone number on Tuesday morning via this social media feed, and on WSKV 104.9 FM. Bear with us in the early stages of this program, as any effort this large-scale will require some tweaks, but we look forward to assisting Powell County and working through this together. #TeamKentucky
