Teaser: State of the County

Many of the ER staff on the frontlines are young parents, pregnant, or caring for elderly relatives. They all make sacrifices to care for our community. For some, that meant quarantining in a hotel for months or isolating in their basement to avoid transmitting the virus to family members.

Join us this Wednesday, October 28th, for our inaugural public State of the County as we discuss effects of COVID-19 in our community, and more. Watch live at 6:00 p.m. on our Facebook page.
