Cook County [from Caribou Falls Wayside northeast] has declared a State of Emergency. The County is working to prevent the spread of the virus and is keenly aware of the limited infrastructure in this rural area. The vast geographic region coupled with the higher-than-average population means any amount of the virus would strain the hospital and emergency infrastructure.
Be well, be safe, be healthy. Get out in your neighborhood and keep a safe distance from others.
