Events Newsletter
Greetings!
Dear Friends and Neighbors,

Since our last update on Friday, January 15, 2021, there are ninety-one (91) new COVID-19 cases to report. An additional one hundred and thirty-nine (139) persons have been quarantined. One death was reported on Saturday, January 16, 2021.
The rate of infection continues to rise in our state. We must remember to practice the safety protocols which helped us lower our numbers during the first wave of the pandemic. I advise all residents to get their flu shots, get tested for COVID-19 if you have been traveling, have been exposed to someone with the virus, or have symptoms. Please also continue to always social distance and wear facial coverings in public and while around people that don't live in your home.

Please scroll down the newsletter to see new COVID-19 testing site dates and locations.

This newsletter shares many upcoming, virtual events for Plainfield residents including live broadcasts, events for your children, and online workshops. We will continue to apprise you of events taking place locally and elsewhere. We may not be able to attend meetings and events in person, but thanks to technology – we can participate virtually.
Creating One Plainfield, One Future

Queridos amigos y vecinos,

Desde nuestra última actualización el viernes 15 de enero, hay noventa y un (91) nuevos casos de COVID-19 que informar. Otras cientoa treinta y nueve (139) personas han sido puestas en cuarentena. El sabado, 16 de enero, se reporto un fallecimiento. .
La propagación del virus sigue aumentando en nuestro estado. Debemos seguir practicando los protocolos de seguridad que nos ayudaron a reducir nuestro número durante la primera ola de la pandemia. Aconsejo a todos los residentes que se vacunen contra la gripe, se hagan la prueba de COVID-19 si han estado viajando, han estado expuestos a alguien con el virus o tienen síntomas. Por favor también continúe siempre manteniendo la distancia social y use cubrimientos faciales en público y cuando esté cerca de personas que no viven en su hogar.

Este boletín comparte muchos eventos virtuales futuros para residentes de Plainfield, incluyendo transmisiones en vivo, eventos para sus hijos y talleres en línea. Continuaremos informando sobre los eventos que tienen lugar localmente y en otros lugares. Es posible que no podamos asistir a reuniones y eventos en persona, pero gracias a la tecnología, podemos participar virtualmente.
