COVID-19 Updates + Virtual Budget Hearing TODAY at 10AM 4/14/20

Dear Friends and Neighbors,

I hope this finds you well, staying healthy and at home.

The Governor reminded us on Friday that between 20-40% of infected people have no symptoms and could easily transmit the virus to someone more vulnerable. “We are about to enter what will probably be the most difficult period we are going to face in dealing with this particular virus at this particular time, ” he said. That’s why our collective priority remains to prevent the spread of the novel COVID-19 virus and why everyone in our communities must continue to stay 6 feet apart from one another and wear non-medical cloth masks.

As more testing becomes available, the ask to the general public is to continue to assume you've been infected and act accordingly by remaining physically distant from others. That way, our front line workers can access the testing first to prevent the virus from spreading unnecessarily.

If you need a mask, you can make one at home without sewing!

To our front line workers in our health care institutions, in our grocery stores and everyone in between, all we can continue to say is, thank you, thank you, thank you.
