As our community works to slow the spread of COVID-19, our message to residents is: Pause, don’t panic. Practice physical distancing, mask-wearing and other CDC-recommended measures. Those who can stay at home should, lessening risk for people who do not have that option, such those working in healthcare and retail. While the COVID-19 case fatality rate is 3.4%, the World Health Organization also reports that 1 in 5 persons who contract the virus may require hospitalization.
Prevention remains the best medicine. Please stay home as much as possible and double down on healthy habits to flatten the curve and give our healthcare systems time to catch up to the outbreak.
