“Over the last couple of weeks, we have seen a slight uptick in COVID-19 cases, and we know many other communities around the state and the nation are seeing more significant increases.  That is a clear indication that our battle with the virus will not end anytime soon.  I was proud to meet with Gov. Brian Kemp and Department of Public Health Commissioner Dr. Kathleen Toomey yesterday when they visited Albany on their “Wear a Mask” tour.  I am grateful they are encouraging Georgians to wear masks as a way to protect the people of our great state and slow the spread of coronavirus.  They not only praised the Phoebe Family for leading the fight against COVID-19, but they held up our area’s response to the pandemic as a model for the rest of the state to follow.  As we celebrate our nation’s independence this weekend, we urge everyone to do so safely and responsibly and to remain committed getting rid of the virus,” said Scott Steiner, Phoebe Putney Health System Chief Executive Officer.
