As community health center leaders, we are writing in support of the Sonoma County Public Health Department. We believe their balanced response, including the current restrictions, has been made based on the best science available, with wisdom and concern for the collective long-term wellbeing of our community. As health care providers, we strongly support the actions that are being taken. As county residents, we are grateful to live in a community where we have such dedicated leadership. We firmly stand with Dr. Mase, who has led this effort with enthusiasm and compassion for all who live in our community. From the perspective of front line health care providers, our public health department has made balanced decisions regarding the reopening process. We believe that their plan will increase the likelihood that the recovery can be successful, and we must remain united in our efforts for a long-lasting recovery.

Human beings like certainty. We are hard-wired to want to know what is happening when and to notice things that feel threatening to us. When things feel uncertain or when we don’t generally feel safe, it’s normal to feel stressed. A large part of anxiety comes from a sense of what we think we should be able to control, but can’t.
