“Our most vulnerable community members — elderly, immunocompromised, and those with chronic conditions — are especially at risk and we must continue to take measures to protect them from this disease. For the health of your family, neighbors, and friends, it is critical to wear a face covering in pubic and limit the size of your gatherings. Each personal decision we make will impact our most vulnerable residents,” health district officials stated.
