We’ve been hearing some buzz that some people in our community believe we are in the clear in terms of the coronavirus in the Katahdin Region. Unfortunately, this is simply not true.
While Maine is in kind of a steady state in terms of new COVID cases, the Katahdin Region is not. Our overall numbers are relatively low in the tri-town area, but they continue to rise by a couple of patients each day.
There are now between 10 and 15 confirmed positive COVID cases in the Katahdin Region.
This should be a wake-up call to the community. COVID-19 is here, and this is not the time to relax the pandemic guidelines. Rather, we need to ramp them up.
We must all be strongly committed to social distancing, mask use, hand washing, etc. If you have any signs of illness, please isolate yourself. These simple precautions will help protect us all.
Our goal is to keep everyone in our community healthy. We’ll do our part— but we need you to do yours.
Stay well. Be vigilant. We’ll get through this together!
