The past few months have been filled with challenges as we’ve all stepped up to tackle the COVID-19 crisis in Adams County. We could not be more proud of the tireless efforts of our healthcare workers risking their lives daily to care for those affected by the virus without sacrificing the medical care of other patients. Each of them has selflessly put their responsibilities ahead of their own well-being, and it takes a special type of person to do that.
And how would we have gotten through the first half of this year without our frontline workers? We owe a huge debt of gratitude to grocery employees, restaurant staff, package delivery workers, farmers, retail staff, truck drivers, and many others. These are the unsung heroes of 2020, and we need to treat them as such.
The saying goes, “It takes a village,” and that has never been more evident than in these last few months. Our medical personnel and frontline employees stepped up, and so many members of our community have as well. From donations of PPE to helping pass out care packages to our aging adults, many community partners and residents volunteered their time and supplies to meet the critical needs of our community. Thank you for your generosity.
Finally, we’d like to thank the representatives of Adams County’s Response & Recovery Teams who have worked long days and late nights to support our healthcare and frontline workers in any way they can.
