As you know, COVID-19 cases continue to rise sharply in our community. I'm asking each of you to do your part to curb the rise in cases. At this point, we all know what to do: stay home as much as possible, keep your mask on when you are out and refrain from gathering – including those holiday parties and gatherings that we all yearn for, but know we should not host or attend.
It is a sacrifice, and in a year of sacrifices this one can seem hard to make. But in this season of goodwill I ask that you practice the compassion and kindness to others that staying home represents. Your actions could make all the difference.
So, please, do your part this holiday season. Stay home. Stay safe. Do all that you can to avoid circumstances wherein you become vulnerable to the transmission of the virus.
I also ask that in this season of giving, you keep first responders and the most vulnerable members of our community forefront in your thoughts as you do your part to give the gift of good health.
Stay safe this holiday season!
