Stay safe this holiday weekend

Take care as Oregon reopens

06/30/2021

We get it.

We all want to return to normal.

We want to eat in a restaurant, see a movie or watch fireworks with our friends and family.

But in a small community like ours, we all have a responsibility to be safe, and the medical community needs your help to ensure that safety.

What can you do to help? You and your families can do so many things to make sure the Fourth of July weekend is safe.

  1. Social distance when possible. We know restrictions are “lifted”; however, our numbers are still higher than we would like, and as of 6/25/21, we were at a 53.7% fully vaccinated rate. That’s a little over half of our community that has been fully vaccinated.
  2. Try to avoid risky behaviors that might result in a trip to the emergency room. Our caregivers are overtaxed, and beds are full locally and statewide.
  3. Enjoy your holiday on a smaller scale. Large crowds of people are not ideal and can lead to an illness that strains the medical system near and far.

Finally, thank you! We know the last 18 months have been extraordinary and unusual. Your kindness to the medical community has been overwhelming and so greatly appreciated. We wish you and yours a wonderful, safe holiday weekend.

Masks continue to be required at CMH for patients, caregivers, and visitors.Learn More
