Over the last several weeks you may have heard news reports of increasing numbers of COVID-19 cases. Orange County as well as several surrounding counties have shown significant increases in positivity rates.
Orange County is considered a hot spot. While many people have been vaccinated, some have not. Additionally, being vaccinated does not guarantee you will be safe from contracting the virus. There have been reports of vaccinated people contracting COVID-19.
CDC guidlines continue to include wearing a mask in public areas and following social distancing of 6 feet. We stronly recommend that you follow these guidelines when in any public setting for your own protection and the protection of others.
In order to protect our older Sisters, Brothers, and Kin from the COVID-19 virus, IATSE Young Workers stand ready to support our members and retirees in a variety of ways.
As you know, COVID-19 is a serious matter. We would like to encourage everyone to take serious cautions to prevent the spread of the virus.
