As announced last week, our County must continue to meet the state’s readiness criteria to continue our reopening process. We are well into the opening of accelerated Phase 2 businesses, and our numbers are holding.
- We continue to have fewer than 8 percent of residents testing positive on a weekly basis
- We have exceeded the required capacity for contact tracers (see related story below)
- We continue to build and maintain testing capacity
We thank all our businesses – and everyone who is patronizing these businesses – for following public health safety guidelines. We are progressing because we’ve all done our part. Residents are wearing face coverings, practicing physical distancing and washing their hands when entering a business (or facility). Businesses are taking care of employees and making appropriate operational changes to ensure safety. And the County is increasing testing and ensuring we have the ability to provide healthcare should there be a surge.
We are still very much #SBCountyTogether when it comes to staying healthy AND getting our economy back on track.
