While we are so fortunate to have so many people vaccinated in Lake County and across the country, over 1,000 Lake County residents have died as a result of COVID-19. Worldwide, 3.48 million deaths have been reported from the disease, including over 588,000 people in the United States. As we enter a new season of recovery in Lake County, we will never forget the great cost to our families and communities throughout the pandemic. Please read below information on how and where to get vaccinated.
I am very grateful to the hundreds, if not thousands, of people who have volunteered their time over the last fourteen months, whether it's making masks, donating food, or volunteering at the mass vaccination site, we could not have made it through this pandemic without them. I am proud of and thankful for our community members who have been quietly serving the people of Lake County.
I hope you have a safe and joyful holiday weekend, and that you are able to spend it with friends and family.
