“Today, is clearly another alarming day. I want to be clear, your County government continues to do everything it can to mitigate the spread of this virus. At this time the most important action people can take is stay home unless it’s absolutely necessary, especially when they are sick.
It is imperative that everyone take every precaution to stay safe. Wear a mask, stay socially distant, stay home, wash your hands and avoid congregating with those not in your immediate household. Collective community action is the key to reversing these numbers.
I will have a briefing on Monday at 3:00pm to lay out next steps as we continue to use every tool at our disposal to fight this virus. “ – Anthony J. Picente Jr.
