I hope this note finds you AT HOME. Unfortunately, I am hearing from countless residents who are concerned about the number of people who continue to congregate in groups, either in restaurants, bars, playgrounds, or in people’s homes, despite the repeated asks and warnings not to do so.
To reiterate, as a community, we have a responsibility and obligation to ensure we all self-isolate to ensure that we don’t inadvertently expose someone with a compromised immune system. You do not have to be experiencing symptoms to be contagious so everyone should act as if they are.
Self isolation will also help to ensure our front line healthcare professionals and hospitals are not overwhelmed with patients at once, which may limit available care to those who need it. The longer this virus takes to spread, the more people can be treated, and the less lethal it will be.
When this horrific pandemic passes, we may all know someone who didn’t survive it. You do not want to be the one who didn’t do their part.
We will most likely be announcing further restrictions after this afternoon’s COVID-19 conference call with the County. I will provide a further update then.
Thank you to everyone who is working so hard to keep our community healthy and functioning, including our first responders, healthcare workers, janitors, and the many hourly wage workers who are doing their best to keep our store shelves stocked. You are all in our prayers.
Be safe. Be healthy. Be responsible. #flattenthecurve
