Sheriff Strong’s message on Facebook:
Some of you may be hearing that I have COVID 19. I am writing to confirm that I did test positive on Friday morning, August 28. I am quarantined at home until at least September 6. My wife Vicky is presently without symptoms but because we share a home she is also under quarantine. My fear is that she will get the virus. My first recognized symptoms were a mild irritated throat, fatigue, and then the fever. The fever came fast. When I went in for the test Friday morning it had reached 104 degrees. I was sick at my stomach, faint, and very fatigued. I’m happy to report that today is the first day that I have not had a fever.
We are fortunate to have family nearby that is getting us what we need. Thank you to the people who are wishing me a speedy recovery. The office of the Sheriff is in very capable hands. I have a great command staff. And lastly, I look forward to a full recovery and getting back to work. So, take care of one another and wear your masks and wash your hands.
