Emergency Services Chief and Public Health Director Share Messages

We know how tempting it is to gather with friends and loved ones, especially on the weekends.  Emergency Services Chief Chris Soliz’s message was clear: just don’t do it.  This virus can attack any one, especially those who least expect it.  Public Health Director Nina Oliver reminds us in her message that social distancing and hand washing are the only weapons we have to fight this virus.  Wash your hands often and remember using hand sanitizer is NOT a replacement for hand washing, but an option when hand washing is not available.  To see their messages to you, visit the Rowan County COVID-19 webpage.
