There are many sacrifices we are all making during this crisis. We are staying home and only making necessary trips to the pharmacy and the grocery store. We are washing our hands frequently, especially if we’ve been out running necessary errands, and we are keeping our distance from one another despite wanting to celebrate birthdays, anniversaries, and high school and college graduations. Our City employees continue to work from home and provide essential services to our community. City staff and your elected officials remain flexible as things change rapidly during this emergency. I continue to be proud of the way we are all working together to control the spread of this deadly virus while supporting each other, taking the time to celebrate positive news, and the creative ways we are collaborating. We can’t stop now. We need to remain vigilant in protecting ourselves, our loved ones and those who are at the greatest risk of dying from this disease by remaining at home and wearing a face mask when we go into critical businesses. City Council unanimously passed a Resolution last Monday ordering face coverings when entering critical businesses. We are working on a plan to make available masks to our businesses for those customers who arrive without one. It’s vital that we work together to help stop the spread of this virus. We’ve come so far in this fight and have begun seeing positive results as the number of cases slow and fewer people being hospitalized. Together we can continue to make a difference in this fight. Thank you for working together during this emergency. Stay well, Wheat Ridge.
