I would encourage all members of the community to keep up with their daily habits of proper hand-washing and ‘social-distancing’ during this declared State of Emergency.
If you have to go out at all, I would suggest that these trips be for your basic necessities; therefore, reducing your chances of exposure to this virus.
I would also remind members of the public that if they are in a position of taking care of loved ones who are sick, whether they are suspected of having the virus or not, that they should also isolate themselves as much as possible from the public even if they are healthy. It is possible that even a healthy individual could be unknowingly carrying the virus and possibly infecting others. This is the whole premise behind the effort to ‘social-distance’.
Please take care of yourselves and look after one another, including any neighbors that may need help. How we choose to carry ourselves throughout these times, defines our community character.
Finally, I want to thank everyone whose efforts to help their community during this time do not go unnoticed, as they are inspiring acts and are truly appreciated by our Officers.
-Lt. Michael N. Brennan (Acting Chief of Police)
