This week marks the second anniversary of our local response to the COVID-19 pandemic. We expected COVID-19 to bear similarities to the flu and yet here we are two years later. I am grateful for the community leaders who made unprecedented decisions for the sake of public health and safety. I am beyond grateful for those who work in this field that risk their lives every day to help keep the population safe. Thank you to those who made the right decisions over the last two years to protect the public.
