Virtual Community Conversation: COVID-19 and Shelter in Place
One month has passed since the stay at home order went into effect. Residents and businesses have made major changes to minimize the spread of COVID-19, yet the virus still exists in our community and hospital surge is still a possibility. Will the shelter in place be lifted soon? How do face coverings factor into this? What is the next step?
