A Message from Supervisor Bosworth: Coronavirus Update
Last Updated 9/22/21:
We were so hopeful that we were seeing the light at the end of the tunnel in terms of the Coronavirus. While there has been tremendous progress on the path back to normalcy, the COVID-19 pandemic is not over yet. The latest concern is the Delta Variant of the virus. This is believed to be the most transmissible variant yet. We’re seeing more and more cases with people being hospitalized among those who have not been vaccinated.
The good news is that the vaccines are effective. The information we are getting is that the widely used vaccines appear to retain most of their effectiveness against the Delta variant. Today, the COVID-19 vaccine is available in many convenient locations, including local pharmacies and facilities right in our own backyard. Fortunately, a majority of Nassau County residents have been vaccinated so appointments are now much easier to schedule with many locations offering walk-ins. For the latest information, or to find out where you can go to get vaccinated, please visit northhempsteadny.gov/vaccine or call 311.
It continues to be important to take the necessary precautions when out in public. Here at the Town, we are continuing to require masks when indoors at Town facilities as well as maintaining social distance.
Our choices can impact not just ourselves, but all those around us. We are now learning that there are more cases in children than before which is another reason why it is so important not to let our guard down.
So let’s help lead the way for family, friends, and loved ones, by encouraging them to get vaccinated if they haven’t done so already. We all want to be able to safely gather together, go back to school and work, and travel without fear. This will help us continue on the path to getting back to normal. So, please, help protect yourself and others by getting vaccinated.
As always, please be smart and stay safe.
