Hi. So the West Marin Feed is me, Christian Anthony. I live in Inverness with my wife and two children. We were just informed that we have been in contact (in a socially distanced manner) with someone who has a family member in Inverness Park who has tested positive today for COVID-19.
The person we had contact with has been tested and is waiting for the results. The person who tested positive is an elder community member who was following all of the guidelines and had limited interaction within the community. This person has contacted everyone they were in contact with. They feel fine for now, but they are being monitored closely. We are self quarantining and waiting for all the results to come back.
The reason I am posting this is because it has been a very sobering moment for myself, my family, and the community of people I know and love here in West Marin. COVID-19 is here. Among us. Now. It is not the flu. It travels easily. You do not want it. I do not want it. We do not want it to spread through our community. So please continue to shelter in place, wear your masks, wash your hands. Do not take chances.
Thank you. Be safe. We will get through this together.
