With the announcement that Live Oak County has a confirmed positive case of COVID-19, some might be asking: “What do we do now?” The answer is quite simple… continue practicing social distancing and proper hygiene. We all knew this could happen and now that it has, it just reiterates the need to do both. Don’t take this virus lightly and take heed to the recommendations and instructions your federal, state, county, and local officials are providing. It takes all of us to change the course. They are working hard to make decisions that may not be popular but are necessary. Work with them, not against. Together, as a community, we will continue to be resilient.

I usually look in the mirror each day and tell myself I will honor the oath I took in becoming a law enforcement officer and I will take a stand on what that badge symbolizes, no matter what the consequences may be. Since this pandemic, I also ask myself if I will do my part today to flatten that curve. At night I look in the mirror again and can confidently say I was righteous and did what was asked of me. I hope each of you can say you did what was asked of you as well!
