A Message To Our Community.

Daytona Beach, Florida Department Of Health

I wanted to send a note of solidarity to all of you as our country and the world confronts the COVID-19 global pandemic. We are entering what will be a stressful time for many Americans, and I want you to know that I am keeping all of you and your families in my thoughts. My heart goes out to those who have already lost loved ones. I encourage you to listen to the health professionals who are asking all Americans to be vigilant about controlling what we can -- wash your hands, try not to touch your face, and avoid large social gatherings. Our team is actively following these guidelines. The All On The Line team and the staff of its affiliates will be working from home and working with local volunteers to ensure that no events take place, that conflict with guidelines coming from public health professionals. Social distancing may feel isolating, but it is one of the best ways that we can all help drive down the spread of COVID-19 and make sure that those who need care can receive it. You can learn more about the best way to help stop the spread of this virus from the CDC's website. This will be a challenging time. But it is a time for us to support one another and put trust in each other. This is an opportunity for us to come together as a nation. And it is, as much as any moment in my lifetime, a time that calls for public policies and decisions driven solely by facts and science. The American people -- all of us -- deserve local, state, and federal governments that look out first and foremost for the best interests of the people. That is the essence of what we have all been fighting for together -- the people. We must also be mindful of the needs of our friends, family, and neighbors who may be particularly vulnerable during this time. Now is a time to show the generosity that has always defined the American people at our best. These challenges may make our reform work more difficult, but certainly not impossible. All great movements face difficulties. Ours is no different. We will prevail. Please take care of yourself and your loved ones.

Mayor Derrick L. Henry
