Key Biscayners must not become complacent just because we are fatigued with the pandemic. Do not ignore public health recommendations. As Francis S. Collins, Director of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), recently stated,
"I understand how people must be very tired of this at this point. But the virus doesn't care that we're tired. The virus is still out there."
If concern for yourself, your family, and your friends doesn't compel you to do the right thing, then consider our island community at large. Consider the heroes of this pandemic--the healthcare workers, essential workers, police officers, paramedics and fire rescue personnel. It is not simply the older population that is highly susceptible to this virus as was initially thought.
The average age of an infected patient in Florida is 46, and the virus is causing a severe infection in children.
The virus does not care about your political leanings, your religious beliefs, or your social status.
While we have gone ahead with reopening, you are still
safer at home
