COVID-19 has changed how we live our lives. Many of us are working remotely. Some of our kids are learning virtually. And we’re all depending on technology to help us stay connected. This demonstrates that we didn’t let this pandemic stop us from doing what’s important. We found a way to do them safely.The same is true for the November 3 election. You can make sure your voice is heard and still be safe. Your voice matters. Our country is at a crossroads. Whoever wins the presidential race will impact our country’s direction for much more than a four-year term. And, as I mentioned a few weeks ago, the future of the ACA is on the ballot.
Today it is very clear that COVID-19 is not easing up. In fact, in Florida – we’re hitting new COVID-19 records almost daily. The number of new cases is climbing. And hospitalization rates are also on an upward trend.
It is imperative to urge one another, our families and our neighbors to renew our commitment to stopping the spread of COVID-19.
Each of us need to do the right thing for ourselves and one another to avoid our community experiencing an even more severe impact.
The most effective way to prevent the spread of the virus is to avoid being exposed in the first place. There are four proven, simple steps we can take to reduce the risk of transmission.
1: Wear a mask.
2: Practice social distancing.
