“Although they continue to be extremely high, we are starting to see some decline in our incidence rates of COVID-19” said Clay Horton, GRDHD Public Health Director. “Even though we are seeing some improvement, COVID-19 is still a risk. The best way to protect yourself and those you love is to get vaccinated against COVID-19. COVID-19 vaccines are safe and highly effective. Wearing a mask when in public or around people you don’t live with is an effective way to reduce spread. If you are not yet vaccinated, go get vaccinated today. If you are already vaccinated and it is time, get a booster shot. If you must be in indoor public spaces, wear a mask. Most importantly, if you are feeling sick, stay home and don’t infect others.”
