“Cases continue to fall thanks to vaccinations and warm weather, but we have to make sure this progress lasts beyond the summer,” said County Commissioner Director Louis Cappelli, Jr. “The only way to know you’re protected is to get vaccinated. If you haven’t gotten your shot yet, the COVID-19 vaccine has never been so readily available at pop-ups, major vaccine centers, or other local providers. Don’t wait until numbers start increasing again to get protected.”
