COVID Summary for 5/3

I don’t think that people are aware of the type of efforts that are going on to move forward responsibly. GOFERR (Governor’s Office for Emergency Relief and Recovery) meets daily and takes input from the people, industries, and groups affected. Everyone is free to call in and listen. If there is a specific question you want addressed, let me know and I will get it on the agenda. ~ Steve
