    I have a question. Can the corona virus live if exposed to extreme cold conditions. If gloves etc were frozen, would that kill the virus. Also would the temperature in a clothes dryer kill the virus on masks & other PPE used around someone with covid-19.

      This isn’t exactly a great place to ask important questions, or any for that matter. If you get any answers it’s just from some faceless stranger, like myself, so who knows where the information is coming from. Here’s a website that might help you get some answers: https://www.cdc.gov/cdc-info/index.html
      Have a good day.

    “In Bear River Health Department” which contains 3 different counties. Why not be like everyone else in the country and just be more communicative and say which g*d d*mn county the cases are in that’s what we all want to know. Thank you for your help fighting this pandemic but seriously Do you need to advertise and promote yourselves in this way that just annoyingly causes less clear information.
