Letter to the Editor - Shelter at home can reduce impact of pandemic

 

March 31, 2020



Editor:

This is a very important message for the people of Montana.

If we all follow the shelter at home rule, we can avoid becoming as devastated as Italy or New York City. Only leave the house for food, medicine or urgent medical care. Only essential businesses and their employees should go to work. Continue to practice social distancing and good hand hygiene.

Currently, we are fortunate to have a low caseload of COVID-19, but we anticipate more cases over the next day to weeks. We can prevent further spread by simply by staying at home. Remember that your actions affect not only you and your family but the well-being of our entire great state.

Thank you for understanding. Please contact your local doctor’s office with any questions. Stay safe.
