You’ve heard by now that we lost our first community member to COVID-19. We send our sincerest condolences to that person’s family and friends.
The COVID-19 pandemic is serious and it’s hitting home.
Think of sheltering in place not as being trapped at home, but as your way of contributing to beating this virus. Think of it as a way to save a life - maybe your own, maybe a stranger. We’re all connected by family, friends, and neighborhoods. Every individual action affects the community as a whole. This is why sheltering in place is important.
If you have to leave home, social distancing is critical. And of course, we can’t forget washing your hands.
Now is the time to come together as the strong, supportive, and resilient community we are. We’ve banded together through two wildfires and a flood in the last 29 months. We can do the same through a pandemic.
Dispatchers are still answering your calls. Deputies are still here to help you. Take care of your neighbors, folks. We‘ll make it through this together.
