Below is a recording of the presentation during the Public Health briefings at this week’s Board of County Commissioners meeting made by Jefferson and Clallam County Public Health Officer Dr. Allison Berry. The summary below was provided by Jim Burke, producer of KPTZ’s Tuesday’s Local News:
– Pediatric hospitals and pediatric beds are far beyond capacity.
– Wear a mask in any indoor public setting.
– If you are sick, stay home.
– If your children are sick, keep them home.
– Get the flu shot and the Bivalent booster COVID-19 shot, if you can.
– Flu, RSV, and COVID-19 are all surging and we will not turn the corner until probably the end of January. 
– Keep the grandparents safe, and skip Christmas dinner if you need to.
