As we all know, Orange County has slowly been emerging from an historic quarantine to flatten the COVID-19 curve over the past several months. The state of California has moved well into Phase 3 of our re-opening plan and many have already begun to return to work or enjoy the ability to dine at their favorite restaurants. With this increase in activity, we wanted to keep you informed about important information that will help us all remain healthy and safe as we enter this new phase together.
It is definitely important to note that COVID-19 is not only still present, but should be viewed as an ongoing concern. We know many are finding it difficult to find information related to coronavirus that is trustworthy and valid. Different sources and news outlets provide very opposing pieces of information, and navigating fact from fiction can be tricky. We at Share Our Selves (SOS) wish to provide you directly with the data, facts, and recommendations we are seeing on the front lines at our facilities and from our colleagues in the sector. With 50 years of service in Orange County, your health and well-being is our mission.
We are all excited for life to start returning to some semblance of normal. We all want our leadership to make decisions that balance the best interest of our public health and our local economy. As we’re being given the opportunity, it is up to all of us to do our part to maintain as low-COVID an environment as possible, adhering to recommendations on social distancing and mask usage while in public. The more we can adhere to these simple public health measures, the more likely it will be that local businesses will be able to remain open because we’ve been able to reduce community spread. We hope that in sharing our findings, we can continue partnering with you to keep our community healthy and safe as we have for the past 50 years.
We’ll have more to share in the coming weeks. In the meantime, be mindful of those who share this community with us. Our health and well-being is a shared responsibility. Stay healthy. Stay safe. Be well.
