Please Note: The reverse 911 COVID-19 update call from Sunday January 3rd, 2021 inadvertently had a misstated line regarding the new variant strain of the virus.

The line stating “the symptoms caused by this variant do not appear to be severe” should have read:      “ the symptoms caused by this variant do not appear to be MORE OR LESS severe than the COVID-19 virus”

We will continue to present only science based information and guidance from our expert leaders in this field and the CDC. We apologize for any confusion this may have presented.
