Councilman Ruben Ramos "Covid-19 updates"

Official release:

 
 
First, I would just like to thank all of the brave individuals serving us during our time of need. They are doing amazing work and the least we can do to help them is to stay home so we can help stop the spread of COVID-19. The sooner we do our part and stay home the sooner we can rid ourselves of this awful virus.
 
We have over 100 individuals that have tested positive for COVID-19 at this time including our first death. Our thoughts and prayers to those individuals and their families during this difficult time.
