"For that reason, it is crucial that I emphasize the importance of protecting the elderly and anyone with an underlying health condition. By wearing a face-covering in public, utilizing proper sanitation methods, and keeping a distance of at least six feet from other people, you are helping us keep these vulnerable folks out of the hands of COVID-19. Together, we can make a positive impact and protect our community members."
