There are many talented and caring professionals who have been vigilantly protecting community health and interests. This same group of individuals have been in constant contact with multiple organizations nationwide, relaying information, investigating resources, seeking opportunities, and strategizing the best outcomes possible for ALL community members. Recommendations and decisions are being made for groups of people, of which there are many layers. Determinations are not ever discussed on an individual level or biased in any way. This is bigger than that and the work done should not be discredited in any way, or by anybody. This is a time for unity, not divisiveness.
Thank all of you for your continued support, cooperation with recommendations, and patience as we navigate this complex process.
We value each and every one of you and will continue to protect your well-being the best we can.
