Letter to the Editor: Exceptional job by Public Health

Listen to this post

Dear Editor,

I would like to thank Alice Harvey and her dedicated staff at Rio Blanco County Public Health for the exceptional job they have done of keeping the public informed about the COVID-19 situation, and providing local vaccination clinics. They have done a terrific job of relaying the ever-changing guidelines and mandates from the state.

I have been fortunate enough to receive both of my vaccinations at the very efficiently run vaccination sites here in Meeker.

I admire the professionalism these public health workers have displayed while dealing with a couple of our disrespectful county commissioners. These are very hard-working, competent county employees who deserve more respect than they are shown by some of our elected officials.

Alice and staff, please know that I, and many others, appreciate the effort you put forth to keep our communities educated and safe.

Rose Cochran
