The Coastal Health District held a video conference responding to the governors decision to reopen some businesses.
Dr. Lawton Davis, Director of the Coastal Health District, says that we are still in the midst of a pandemic and everyone needs to be responsible personally and socially. Dr. Davis also explained that it would be presumptuous of him to second guess the Governor, but he believes our local and state measures have been making a difference. He is still encouraging people to take measures to stay safe by staying home and only leaving the house for essential needs.
“Flu like illness of visits to emergency rooms has dropped and that’s a good sign. I know that the number of deaths seems to be declining and here in the coastal area we have seen what I would call a plateauing of new cases were not astronomically climbing, but I can’t in good faith say that we’re actually dropping yet either,” said Dr. Lawton Davis, Director of the Coastal Health District.
