Let's Stay Strong to Stay Safe

When the pandemic hit, our community did a great job of flattening the curve. We wore our masks, stayed home and kept our distance. It’s tempting to let our guard down. But we’re not out of the woods yet. Locally and nationally, we are seeing a new surge in COVID cases. Many have relaxed their social distancing, are attending gatherings and are not following the precautions we know work to stop the spread of COVID. 

That’s why we need to double down on our effort now, and make smart that keep us healthy for the people who need us:

Take a moment to think about who depends on you. Who are the people in your life you want to protect from illness?

  • Wear a mask in public and stay six feet apart.
  • Avoid gatherings, large or small at work and socially.
  • Think twice before travelling outside our community, and make plans for a safe holiday season.  This may require tough decisions to keep everyone safe.
  • Wash your hands a lot.
  • Get a flu shot

We’ve done this before, and we can do it again. We’ve come a long way since the pandemic began. We have promising treatments and vaccines. We will get through this, but for now, we need to stay strong to stay safe.
