Manners Matter: Do Your Part to Slow Spread of COVID-19

Dear Readers,

This week certainly looks different than last week. A lot is changing due to COVID-19, and some are panicking. I’d like to remind everyone that although things seem to be spiraling out of control, we can all be doing our part in containing this virus.

Please heed the warnings that have come from the CDC and our government officials to stay home for the next 15 days. While you’re at home, keep making sure you’re washing your hands for the recommended 30 seconds.

If you’re in a job that puts you in the front line of this virus, such as health-care workers and those who are working to keep our grocery stores staffed and stocked, we all thank you for caring for your community and putting others first. 

Let’s all be keeping in touch with what our neighbors are doing and what their needs are. If you have an elderly neighbor or know someone who might be food insecure, there are resources available through local charities, churches and businesses. The Pulse will share local news as usual and will be another resource for sharing information.

We need to be responsible and stay informed, and we will all figure this out together. Stay safe and well.

Good luck,

Mary Pat
