Statement of Support for Sonoma County Public Health Directives

June 3, 2020

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.
