[ARCHIVED] COVID-19 Update from President Sells

COVID-19 Image - 3-13-2020

According to the Illinois Department of Public Health, Riverside currently is posted as having 43 confirmed COVID-19 cases. But please remember that this number is based on available testing results. The fact is, there is no way to know who might be asymptomatic or presymptomatic carriers of the virus and therefore capable of transmitting the illness to others. This past weekend when the weather was nice, I saw people letting down their guard – having people over for cookouts, non-related groups of children playing together, and people going into Riverside Foods while refusing to wear a facial covering.

We must not be tempted by such behaviors. They are the surest way to see another spike of cases, and deaths, come early and mid-summer. Please do your part in protecting others and don’t succumb to bad practices just because somebody else is doing so. It’s a cliché, but every chain is only as strong as its weakest link. Please don’t be that link.
