Mayor Kenney has issued a new business activity and stay at home order requiring us to stay home except for absolutely necessary activity. Here is the link to the order: New Business Activity and Stay at Home Order: What you need to know.
The graphic illustration below shows the importance of social distancing. It shows us that we all have the power to prevent the spread of COVID-19 in our communities by limiting our contacts with others.
At this moment, if we do nothing, one person who is infected will infect 2-3 people in 5 days and over 400 in thirty days. This is if we do nothing.
But if we were to just cut our contacts by 50% only 15 people would be infected by that same one person in thirty days. And if we cut our contacts by 75% ( three quarters) only 2-3 people will be infected in thirty days.
Remember: A contact is anybody you get near. You have to limit your contact with your family, your extended family, your friends, and strangers. Everybody.
If we all do this, we can stop the spread of COVID-19 and save lives.
