Important Info regarding COVID-19

Folks, this is serious. The World Health Organization (“WHO”) declared novel COVID-19 – Coronavirus a pandemic. The President of the United States declared a National Emergency. The Governor ordered school closings throughout the state for the next 3 weeks, banned public gatherings of more than 25 people, and prohibited dine-in at restaurants and bars – allowing only take-out and delivery services.

A local physician drafted a letter and a Do’s and Don’ts Document to send to our civic leaders urging more definitive action now to protect the health of our community.  With the physician’s permission, I am publishing here and her collaborator’s work. Please, please, please, heed their advice.

See Text of Letter to the Mayor here and Do’s and Don’t’s here.
