During his July 30th press briefing, Health Officer Dr. Jeff Duchin discussed the recent increase in COVID-19 cases and vaccination efforts.
Delta has put us in a more difficult position we were not wanting to be in at this point in the outbreak. New information has led to recent changes in indoor masking and testing guidance. We’ll need to continue to adapt to the changing reality and adjust our guidance and personal behaviors appropriately to help us stay as healthy as possible. Layered protection remains the best protection. We have great tools to fight COVID-19 – first among them are vaccines – but until we’re in a more stable and safer place, it makes sense to take advantage of other easy and effective measures to reduce our risk.Health OFficer, Dr. Jeff DuCHIn
