COVIF-19 is a coronavirus outbreak first identified in Wuhan China that was named COVID-19 by the Wolrd Health Organization on February 11, 2020.  There are  many types of human coronaviruses including some that commonly cause mild upper-respiratory tract illnesses. COVID-19 is a new disease, caused be a novel (or new) coronavirus that has not previously been seen in humans. ( COVID-19 - Newton County )

People with COVID-19 have had a wide range of symptoms reported – ranging from mild symptoms to severe illness. Symptoms may appear  2-14 days after exposure to the virus. People with these symptoms may have COVID-19: Fever or chills Cough Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing Fatigue Muscle or body aches Headache New loss of taste or smell Sore throat Congestion or runny nose Nausea or vomiting Diarrhea This list does not include all possible symptoms. CDC will continue to update this list as we learn more about COVID-19. ( COVID-19 - Newton County )

The virus that causes COVID-19 is thought to spread mainly from person to person, mainly through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs, sneezes, or talks. These droplets can land in the mouths or noses of people who are nearby or possibly be inhaled into the lungs. Spread is more likely when people are in close contact with one another (within about 6 feet). COVID-19 seems to be spreading easily and sustainably in the community (“community spread”) in many affected geographic areas . Community spread means people have been infected with the virus in an area, including some who are not sure how or where they became infected. ( COVID-19 - Newton County )

COVID-19 is a new disease and there is limited information regarding risk factors for severe disease. Based on currently available information and clinical expertise,  older adults and  people with underlying  medical conditions are at higher risk for severe illness from COVID-19. ( COVID-19 - Newton County )

Clean your hands often Wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds If soap and water are not readily available, use a hand sanitize that contains at least 60 percent alcohol. Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands. Avoid close contact Avoid close contact with people who are sick Put distance of at least six feet between yourself and other people. ( COVID-19 - Newton County )

Current  CDC guidance for when it is OK to release someone from isolation is made on a case by case basis and includes meeting all of the following requirements: The patient is free from fever without the use of fever-reducing medications. The patient is no longer showing symptoms, including cough. The patient has tested negative on at least two consecutive respiratory specimens collected at least 24 hours apart. Someone who has been released from isolation is not considered to pose a risk of infection to others. ( COVID-19 - Newton County )

Surveying Stakes There should be surveying stakes or pins on your property, which will help locate your properties boundaries. Surveying pins are usually located at the corners of your property. In recent years, they typically are 1/2 inch diameter pipe, sometimes buried into the ground so you may not find them on the surface. Subdivision and / or individual property plats show the shape and dimensions of your lot and where the survey pins should be placed.  Subdivision & Individual Property Plats Most subdivision plats are available for review or purchase in the Department of Development Services in the Newton County Administration Building: 1113 Usher Street Suite 204 Covington, Georgia 30014 Subdivision and / or individual property plats are available for review or purchase in the Clerk of Superior Courts office (Records and Deeds) located on the 3 rd floor of the Newton County Judicial Center: 1132 Usher Street 3rd Floor Covington, Georgia 30014 Contact Us After reviewing the following information if you still have questions, you may contact the Department of Development Services at 678-625-1659. Please call  (770) 784-2035 or visit   https://www.alcovycircuit.com/ clerk-of-courts/55-clerk-of- courts/newton-clerk-of-courts/ 142-real-estate-division.html   ( Development Services - Newton County )

The County does not locate property boundaries in the field for residents. If you cannot locate the original survey pins, the only accurate way to find or replace them is to hire a land surveyor. Land surveyors are listed in the Yellow Pages or you may check with the Newton County Chamber of Commerce. Fences, Power Poles & Public Walks Remember, while fences, power poles and public walks may give you a general idea of where your property lines are, they are not always accurate indicators. But they are a good place to start looking for markers. Fences are sometimes located on property lines, but the previous owner may have erected the fence well inside the line. Also, lots are not always uniform in size, so it should not be assumed that your property lines will line up with the lot lines of your neighbors. Contact Us After reviewing the following information if you still have questions, you may contact the Department of Development Services at 678-625-1659. ( Development Services - Newton County )

When buying a property, part of the process involves receiving survey information about the boundary lines of the property. However, over time, changes to the landscape often can present less clear visions of property lines. Properties that border park, conservation green space, transitional buffers or government lands can also present situations that are not correctly interpreted by landowners. Some landowners assume that since the adjacent parkland will not be developed, it is okay to extend fences, or erect sheds, on that land. This assumption could lead to serious consequences for landowners. Knowing the boundary lines of your property could help you avoid: Being forced to alter or remove structures that extend over the property line Being forced to remove or move landscaping that encroach or extend over the property line Fines Lawsuits Neighbor disputes Examples Examples of situations when it is important to know property line locations If you disagree with your neighbor on the property line location If you plan to build a new structure or add onto an existing structure If you plan to erect a fence, pool or deck If you plan to plant, trim or remove a tree or bush near your property line Contact Us After reviewing the following information if you still have questions, you may contact the Department of Development Services at 678-625-1659.
