Sending a S.O.S. to the Governor During Nurses Week

One week seems like a lifetime ago during this public health emergency, but this weekend is only a couple of days away. As our state economy reopens and the public restrictions loosen, our state’s public health experts are advising us of a surge in COVID-19 positive cases in the community.
