While it might feel like things are getting back to normal, now is the time to remain vigilant. Our region is seeing a large increase in COVID-19 cases, and Beacon hospitals are caring for the highest number of COVID-positive patients since the pandemic started. Dr. Dale Patterson, Memorial vice president of medical affairs, cautions everyone in the community to not let your guard down. Continue to wear masks, social distance, and encourage others to do the same. We are all in this together.
