*Two Rivers Statement: Please understand that deaths are reported in the press release after much research is completed to determine whether a death is related to COVID-19 or not, that is why a death may not be reported immediately. “Our heart aches for the families and friends of those who have passed. Please let your precious
memories help get you through these hard times. Now is the time we need to be extra vigilant in our efforts to slow the spread of COVID-19, hope is on the horizon in the form of vaccinations for all (hopefully) by the end of summer, however it takes time to get everyone vaccinated so until that time PLEASE be safe so we can get
through this together,” states Hayley Jelinek, Emergency Response Coordinator.

Even if you don’t feel sick, you can spread COVID-19 to others. Be sure that you protect everyone as though they are the most fragile person in your life. People of any age can get COVID-19, even healthy young adults and children. People who are older or have certain underlying medical conditions are at higher risk of
getting very sick from COVID-19. Other groups may be at higher risk for getting COVID-19 or having more severe illness.
Here are a few ways to protect yourself and others:

 Stay home if you are sick,
 Wash your hands
 Keep your social circle small,
 Stay at least 6 feet apart,
 Wear a mask
