“We must continue to do our part to ensure that we are on the path to recovery. As we wait for new treatments and a vaccine, there are tasks that people can do now that we know work, ”Dr. Said Dr. Calletta, Calaveras County Health Officer. “Recovery is something we all want to see as soon as possible. We can achieve this when local businesses and our community work together to keep each other safe and sound. This means covering the face, testing, washing your hands, often staying indoors if you are ill, and practicing physical distance. “Dr. Kelita said.
