The Piedmont Health District, our district health agency, is urging localities to communicate the importance of limiting social contact outside of the home. The numbers will continue to increase and while Lunenburg does not have a confirmed case today, we might in the near future if we do not follow what is proven to reduce the number of cases.
We understand that there are essential jobs and tasks that must be performed. We are grateful for all of you, who (like us) are working to provide essential services. Thank you for your time and service to our citizens.
Social distancing is important, sanitizing and washing your hands is important. The lives of our family, friends, and neighbors are precious. Do this for them and help stop the spread.
