From Mayor Derek Armstead
As each day passes more people are tested and the numbers of those infected increases. We have lost so many Linden residents to COVID-19. Our hearts go out to those families as they mourn the loss of those they love. Please keep them in your prayers. I have a few timely requests for every Linden resident. Please…
- keep everyone that has suffered from this virus in your prayers.
- follow the CDC Guidelines to ensure everyone’s safety.
- stay home unless you are going out for essential items.
- practice social distancing at all times.
- stay home if you are sick.
We are all in this together, and we will continue working together to beat this.
Remember, to effectively communicate the latest COVID-19 information to our residents transparently and as quickly as possible, our COVID-19 Menu on the City website contains useful and current data. With questions concerning COVID-19 please call the Linden Board of Health Office or call the Coronavirus Emergency Hotline at 1-800-222-1222.
Please call my office with questions, concerns, for assistance, or even just to say hi.
Managing the Fear of Coronavirus
Due to reports of Coronavirus cases in the U.S., many people are expressing fear and anxiety about this potentially serious illness. While it is understandable to worry about the health and safety of ourselves and out loved ones, it is important to manage our anxiety. Few make good decisions based on fear, and the 24/7 media coverage – much of it gloomy – often obscures reality and adds to a sense of panic. Taking care of your emotions, especially during times of higher stress and anxiety, is a good first step to protecting yourself. Please read this attachment for more information.
