“No community is immune”, Mayor Miller said. “If you don’t feel well, please stay home. Do not go to the ER or doctor’s office without phoning first to help from overloading the medical staff.”

“Take necessary precautions and be proactive with building your immune systems. Fear does no good! We will get through this together.”
