CLINTON COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI) - The Clinton County Board of Commissioners are activating parts of the County Emergency Management Plan.

Read the full statement sent to News 18 below.

"In response to the COVID-19 pandemic the Board of Clinton Commissioners instructed, via executive order, Clinton County Emergency Management Director Darrell Sanders to implement the County’s Comprehensive Emergency Management Plan. Director Sanders will activate and deactivate the portions of the CEMP that are needed to respond to the rapidly changing situation. Currently the Communications and the Health and Medical portions of the plan have been activated by the EMA Director. Clinton County Central Dispatch Director Renee Crick is in charge of the Communications portion, and Clinton County Health Department Administrator Rodney Wann is in charge of the Health and Medical portion.

It is important to note that the CEMP also includes all City of Frankfort Agencies and the input of Frankfort Mayor Judith Sheets. As we always have, everyone is working together for our community.

As of right now there are no confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Clinton County. As more testing becomes available that statistic is likely to change. Dr. Tharp and Dana Longenecker of the Clinton County Board of Health have been working to make testing more readily available in Clinton County. The Clinton County Council took emergency action yesterday to make sure the funding is in place to be used to purchase tests if need be.

We would like to again ask that all citizens of Clinton County continue to adhere to the guidelines that have been issued by the President Trump, Governor Holcomb, and the CDC. The more stringently we adhere to recommendations the sooner we will defeat COVID-19.

One more thing, please resists the temptation and refrain from going to our local stores and hoarding items that everyone needs. We’ve said it before and it needs to be reiterated, that type of behavior has no place in modern civilized society. We all have families to look out for, but we also need to look out for each other."
