Local Health Providers Ask Community for Help with Covid

The letter describes the dire conditions healthcare providers are seeing at work every day: emergency departments overflowing, full ICUs, and a surge of sick young patients with covid-19. The doctors are urging Mendocino County residents to stem the tide of new infections by getting vaccinated.

Dr. Erica Valdovinos and Dr. Drew Colfax are two of the doctors who signed on to the letter.
