Letter | Summer and spring were pandemic ‘dress rehearsals’
Just because residents did not get tested months after the virus has spread throughout our communities is no reason to end the COVID-19 status.
Doing so will only make it harder to reinstate tests, tracing, infection counts, reports, etc., in a month or two when the seasonal flu and COVID-19 collide.
Folks, this past spring and summer were only a dress rehearsal for what is on the horizon this fall and winter. Let’s be proactive now , so we don’t need to be reactive in the coming months.
Keep the declaration in place.
