“We are concerned about the increase in cases our region has seen over the last few weeks. Even accounting for our increased population this time of year, our case counts have increased substantially compared to one month ago,” shared Dr. Meyerson, medical director. “We caution everyone to keep their gatherings small and outdoors if possible, wear your masks and face coverings whether at work or play, and keep your distance. We all have a responsibility to contain the spread of COVID-19, to protect ourselves and our loved ones, and to stay safe to stay open.”
