Make no mistake about it, we are in a battle against COVID-19. We have significant community transmission, a rising positivity rate, and more people are filling up our hospitals.

To summarize where we are, below is a quick look at our most current data through 11-23-20:


As I told you last week, we had free testing events this past Saturday and Sunday. Over 2,600 people came to get a test before the Thanksgiving holiday. Because of the success from this past weekend, we will be doing more testing events like this throughout the month of December.

Stay tuned for more details on this.

Thanksgiving: This Thursday is a special time for many of us. As a reminder—if you do choose to celebrate the holiday in-person with people outside your household, we are asking that you:

  • Get tested before you go
  • Limit gatherings to no more than10 people and no more than two family households
  • Wear a mask at all times around people who don’t live in your household
  • Limit close contact by maintaining six feet or more from people outside your household
  • Stay outdoors
  • Limit contact with commonly touched surfaces
  • Wash your hands frequently for at least 20 seconds

Lastly, as we celebrate the Thanksgiving holiday this week, I would ask that you take time to remember our first responders—our doctors, nurses, paramedics, firefighters, and police. They are our first line of defense against this virus, and they’re risking their lives each day to keep us safe.

I hope you and your family have a safe and happy Thanksgiving!
