This isn’t over yet!

The government has taken some pretty big steps in slowing down the spread of the virus. They have closed schools in Washington for the rest of the year! If you look, all of these precautions to help slow the spread of the virus have made a big difference.

However, we are not done with this yet! If you look at the news across the entire U.S. people are starting to flood beaches and parks. Some health care workers described this as a “slap in the face.” Medical workers have put their lives at stake working to protect us and yet we try to act like nothing happened and resume our previous lives.

This virus has certainly not run its course yet so respect medical workers, your neighbors, your family and your communities. Please follow the social distancing guidelines and other recommended actions.
