Berks County DES COVID-19 Mid-Action Review
The Berks County Department of Emergency Services has completed a COVID-19 Mid-Action Review to evaluate the community's overall response to the COVID-19 pandemic. A presentation of the report was featured in the Berks County Commissioners' Weekly Update program broadcast LIVE on Wednesday, January 13.
The COVID-19 pandemic has now infiltrated nearly every aspect of our daily lives in one way or another. Whether you and your family have been affected directly by the virus, felt the economic impact of losing a job of business, or struggled through the loneliness of quarantining and limited social plans, we have all been through a lot since March 2020. Through our Do your Part Berks campaign, the County of Berks is encouraging each member of our community to do what they are able to help mitigate the spread of COVID-19 by practicing proper Health and Safety standards. We know it's been hard and it feels like we've been living under this cloud for a long time, but if we each do our part, we can get through this together.
We still have work to do to stop the spread in Berks County and throughout the Commonwealth.
We are calling on our businesses, institutions and residents in Berks County to focus their attention on meaningful and effective Health and Safety standards of wearing masks, social distancing, washing hands and cooperating with contact tracing. Our local economy has taken a major hit and small businesses and hard-working men and women in Berks are being crushed. In order to help our community thrive and regain a sense of normalcy, we must do every thing we can to be safe until we are through this season.
