Stay in to protect us all

Dear Parents in Kitsap County,

I am an adult with asthma. I have worked in the health field on and off throughout my 20s. I was a hygiene coordinator and a dental assistant. This new virus is real and it’s scary. Anyone who has had to study long hours in the medical field knows just how scary this is. I beg you to keep your kids home. Letting your young children and teens get together in big groups, which I have seen the past few days, could put others in danger, especially those who have a high risk condition. This is serious. This is for the health and safety of us all. Thank you.

Erin Ayriss,

Kingston
