This week, Southwest District Health announced Canyon County is moving our alert level to orange (an improvement from red), as our daily incidence rate of COVID-19 cases continues to decline. While the improvement in recent weeks is a reflection of the community efforts (wearing facial coverings, keeping distance, limiting gatherings, etc.) ….we need to continue to stay diligent.
I would like to appeal to our community to remain vigilant and to keep doing all we can to slow the spread. As kids go back to school, get on buses and some sports resume, there is considerable opportunity for increased spread. Let’s all stay diligent to keep our numbers down. It would be easy to let up on doing all the positive things we've been doing, but now is the time to press on toward our goal of returning to normal.
Thank you to everyone who remains vigilant during this time.
