Barbara Ferrer, PhD, MPH, MEd, Director of Public Health shared comments on the County’s devastating milestone: As we mark this heartbreaking day and note with sadness the loss of over 20,000 County residents, we mourn with all of you who have lost someone you love to COVID-19. We are deeply sorry for your loss, and wish you healing and peace. As more and more of our County residents return to businesses and school, it’s important to remember that the actions we all take today will affect the numbers of cases, hospitalizations and deaths several weeks from now. As we continue to bear witness to the devastating loss of life from COVID-19, we ask that everyone continue to use the tools we know work to slow the spread of the virus: wear a mask and keep 6 feet of distance anytime you are around others not in your household. This virus is still easily transmitted among people in contact with each other and we must do all we can to continue the momentum of the decreases we are seeing cases, hospitalizations and deaths.
COVID-19 is still among us, and while cases are trending downwards, we must stay diligent. Wear a face covering, wash your hands, and keep practicing physical distancing. Avoid large and indoor gatherings.
