Midland has seen a huge jump in positive COVID cases over the past few weeks. Midland Memorial Hospital is already at capacity and strapped for supplies. We encourage all of you to take the measures you feel are safe to avoid the spread of COVID. If that means get the vaccine then get the vaccine. If it means wearing a mask, then wear a mask. Please everyone remember to wash your hands.

If you think you are experiencing symptoms, please get tested. You don't want to spread the virus to anyone else because you are too stubborn to get tested. You would feel horrible if someone got COVID because of you.  I know how I felt last year when I thought I had exposed my entire family.
