Greg and I are back after a week off celebrating our Nation’s birthday. Unfortunately, we have seen our numbers increase (see attached dashboard and graph). Fortunately, more people are beginning to understand the need to wear masks (see attached FAQs on masks and how they help). Wearing a mask is a tool to help us keep our economy going by allowing people to go out while reducing the spread of COVID-19 to other people.
Coconino County Health and Human Services in partnership with NAU have created a new COVID Aware Enhanced Food Handler’s Certification for the local food-service industry. Please see the attached press release and https://coconino.az.gov/2397/CCHHS-Enhanced-Food-Handlers-Cert for more information.
As I have noted before with limited testing and no vaccine, this is a challenging situation where patience, perseverance, kindness, and mutual respect are our guiding principles. Please help us help one another.
Testing continues to be available at Fort Tuthill County Park Monday through Friday from 10 am to 3pm. Please find attached a pre-testing assessment flyer to help assist with questions folks may have.
Although some places received rain other did not and we are still in stage 2 fire restrictions.
Thank you for all of your help in getting this information out to our communities. Stay safe and well.
