Can you please contact whoever is need so that we have purchase for our surge in cases.
Do the positive cases & their families understand to stay home and how not to spread the disease? (This has been an issue here.) Is the city helping with necessities so a family member doesn't leave to get food? Family members who were not tested are being seen in public. This is critical to the health and safety of our community.
I just wanted to say that yesterday’s Altus flu shot drive was orchestrated sooo nicely! I mean for there to be so much going on at one time y’all rocked it !! Thank you so much for your kindness, patience & speediness! I was literally in & out within 10 min 👌🏽! That was ran very smoothly; a job very well done. All your effort shined, Thank you all!
