Yuma County Board of Supervisors Plea with Public To Take COVID-19 Precautions

Yuma County

As Thanksgiving and the holidays approach, the Yuma County Board of Supervisors released a joint- video message this week reminding residents to follow the Center's for Disease Control Guidlines to help limit the spread of COVID-19.

The video message comes as the county's percentage of positive COVID-19 tests hit 15-percent. There are 15,788 total COVID cases, and 368 deaths.

"We do not want to go backward. No one wants to see businesses forced to close again. No one wants to lose a loved one," said Supervisor Russell McCloud in the 1:02 minute long video.

"Each of us must remain committed to doing our part to keep each other safe and healthy. Together we can beat COVID-19, but we need your help," said Supervisor Darren Simmons.

Supervisors note that the region was able to lower COVID-19 case rates this past summer by following guidelines from the CDC like wearing a face covering, frequent hand washing, and social distancing.

The video was released in english and spanish.
