Right now, staying home except for essential trips is working to limit the spread of COVID-19. The fewer interactions we have with people outside of our household, the fewer chances there will be to spread the virus. This is the easiest way to stop the virus, and we’ve seen that it works in Whatcom County.
But we can’t stay home forever. As we prepare for businesses to open and make plans to reunite with friends and family, here are a few things you should know that will help you stay healthy and reduce the chances that you may pass this illness on to others.
Healthcare and other essential workers do these things everyday to keep themselves and others safe. We should follow their examples. Much of what happens in the future is dependent upon our individual actions now. It’s hard to stay away from our friends and relatives, but that is the most effective way to save lives and to get people back to work. The more we stay home and limit contact with others, the sooner we will be able to move on in our recovery and fully reopen Whatcom County. This is a careful and delicate process. Thank you for doing your part.
