Thank our public health officials
COVID-19 has been hard on everyone.
And while we all recognize that the physicians, nurses, and other health care providers who have battled against the pandemic on the frontlines deserve tremendous praise and recognition for their valiant work, there’s another group of individuals who have been fighting to protect our collective public health whose efforts have largely gone unsung.
Our county health departments and public health officers deserve our sincerest thanks and gratitude for the work they have done in response to COVID-19.
Despite threats and pressure to do otherwise, these men and women have done everything possible to protect the health and safety of all residents in their communities, through education, mask mandates quarantine protocols, and other public health outreach and interventions.
It’s important, brave work that should be applauded and celebrated. Please take a moment to thank your local public health officials and let them know they have your support.
