Dr. Rachel C. Wood, Health Officer for Thurston and Lewis counties, penned this report for The Olympian earlier this month:
“You may not know it, but there are public health people, my people, out there every day working to protect you and your family from harm. Our work is to protect you and the rest of the community from infectious diseases that can make you miserable at best, or threaten your life at worst.”
“Heres what you can do to stay healthy.
Eat well, and balance work, play and rest.
Wash your hands and cover your cough.”
