PETERS – As Interior Health COVID-19 cases rise, we need a pep talk

ALL RIGHT, RESIDENTS OF INTERIOR HEALTH: it’s time for a pep talk.

It’s time for the coach to come in during the intermission and kick some garbage cans around.

It’s time for us to get our collective head out of our collective posterior and step up our collective game.

For the first ten months of this pandemic, we have stared, mouths agape, at the Lower Mainland, wondering how the spread of COVID-19 could be so bad there.

Well, now they are looking back up here, wondering the same thing.

While case counts in Vancouver Coastal and Fraser Health have plateaued and even started to decline, ours continue to rise.
