COVID-19 Update from President Sells

COVID-19 Image - 3-13-2020

Dear Neighbors,

Riverside, like most of Illinois, is experiencing an uptick in COVID-19 cases. All of the science indicates that this trend is likely to get worse as we move into the fall and winter months. And the reason that cases are increasing is because collectively we are letting down our guard.

All of us have one responsibility during this time -- to do no harm. Asymptomatic and presymptomatic cases are the major vectors for transmission, and none of us know at any given moment if we are sick and capable of transmitting the disease. The novel coronavirus is a potentially deadly virus that does not distinguish between political ideology, age, race, or gender. COVID-19 is an equal opportunity disease.

We all know the drill; we just have to do it:

Stay home if we are not feeling well and avoid contact with others.

Wear a facial covering when we are out and about and cannot properly physically distance ourselves from others.

Wash our hands more than we think we need to. Use hand sanitizer when unable to wash hands.

Physically distance -- six feet minimum; and don’t be shy about asking others to do the same.

Avoid crowds.

Please do your part in helping to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Our lives, and the lives of people we love, depend on it.

If you want to keep track of cases in Riverside and other communities, go to:

Thank you,

Ben Sells
