Prevention Measures

“Vaccinations are the most important method our county has of controlling COVID-19 illness and deaths,” said Health Officer Dr. Nilesh Kalyanaraman, “However, the vaccine will not end the spread on its own. There is a chance that a vaccinated person can be a silent carrier. Please continue wearing a mask, social distancing and washing your hands to control this pandemic.” .
