Some will say it’s just a small percentage of the population. Some will say it isn’t that serious, and it’s like the flu.
Some will say shut everything down.
Everyone has their opinion; please respect others’ views.
No one knows the perfect solution.
These new numbers did not come from recent openings of salons or restaurants. The count has been slowly building behind the scenes in a variety of locations like crowded workplaces, homes, and carpools. We can’t ever be sure because so many people have few or no symptoms.
Be safe, be careful, stay home if you are vulnerable, keep your hands clean, and I know you don’t like it, but wear a mask in a crowd to protect others from you.
Tomorrow we will get to work with state personnel to help us with this recent surge in numbers.
