We are dealing with a crisis and headed toward a potential catastrophe. This reality has become clear during the last few weeks as our hospitals have reached or exceeded capacity. We are opening up old units, finding equipment and redeploying staff. We are tapping into resources that we never thought we would have to.

There’s no denying it. So, I’m going to be blunt in my comments. We are giving our all, and then some, every day to fight COVID. But the numbers continue to head in the wrong direction. We need the collective efforts of our community to fight this virus.
