Letter: Thanking Chris Baird and the other officials

 I would like to thank Chris Baird and the other members of the task force for recognizing and addressing the threat that the SARS-CoV-2 (novel coronavirus) and the disease it causes–COVID-19–represents to the whole community in a reasoned and well-thought-out manner and I thank the council members who voted for it. It is disappointing and troubling that the rest of the council members present for the vote and the members of the business community that were present were against this measure.
