During the press conference health Commissioner Dr. Letitia Dzirasa said, “The Delta variant is here, and it poses a serious threat to our unvaccinated residents. I’m speaking to you not just as the Health Commissioner but as a mother of a child that is too young to be vaccinated. We have the ability to slow the spread COVID-19 and the actions we all take collectively will protect the most vulnerable among us.”
