Inyo County COVID-19 and Vaccine Update
Wednesday, November 24th, 2021
We are sending our weekly update early this week.
Our office is closed Thursday and Friday for the Thanksgiving holiday.
With Thanksgiving tomorrow, we would like to take this opportunity to thank ALL of our community members for continuing to practice health & wellness measures and for doing all they could throughout the pandemic to help keep each other safer. Wearing a face mask, getting vaccinated, and answer contact tracing calls has made a difference.
At times the pandemic may feel never-ending or hopeless, but when you take a step back and look at all we have accomplished together you will see we have come a long way since March 2020. Lives have been saved, innovations and adjustments have shown us new ways of working/living, and each setback has also brought opportunity.
May we never forget those we have lost and may we all be thankful for loved ones near and far. Together we are stronger. We hope you stay safe and healthy.
