The COVID-19 virus shows no partiality or prejudice. Regardless of our age, ethnic background, socio-economic status, occupation, or financial situation, when it comes to the COVID-19 virus, we are equal. We are all connected and what happens to one impacts us all. We are in this together, and we must fight this together. Statistics show that the best way to fight this deadly virus is by staying home. If you can’t stay home, please practice social distancing, remain diligent with personal hand hygiene, and limit exposure throughout your community. By avoiding contact with others, we will slow the spread of the COVID-19 virus and hopefully protect our most vulnerable citizens from contracting the COVID-19 virus.
