I wanted to share just a few thoughts with you about the current situation we find ourselves in.
There is a huge, continually-updated, almost overwhelming amount of information coming out. I think it would be counterproductive for me to try to add to that stream of information in real time. The shortest, easiest advice I can give about receiving accurate information is to check the Tompkins County Health Department website: https://tompkinscountyny.gov/health There you will find accurate, up-to-date information about much of what you might want to know. Those who do not have internet access can call 211 to ask questions.
I can help you try to find answers to your questions too. What I am doing myself is also looking on the Tompkins County Health Department website to try to find answers to the questions that I receive. You can reach me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Beyond that, my personal advice is that the most important thing to do is keep our distance from each other. The next most important thing we can do is to keep our immune systems strong, as best we can. I think that means trying to get enough sleep, eat well, get outside to walk if you can, and de-stress as much as possible.
We will get through this. Stay well… Dan Klein, Tompkins County Legislature
