昆士市 COVID-19 疫情更新 36人確診

取自臉書(From facebook):
Tom Koch 市長3月25日新冠狀病毒資訊:大家晚安。今晚資訊如下:昆士市居民中有36例COVID-19新冠狀病毒陽性病例,昨天是24例。已經有八人康復,70人無症狀正自我隔離。我知道我們所有家長都不會太高興聽到今天省長發出關閉所有學校至少到5月4日的命令,作出這命令毫無疑問是為了每個人的安全著想。省長今天還稱暫時禁用可重用的環保袋,因重用的傳播病毒機會高,我知道我們花了幾個月告訴您放棄用膠袋之後,現在我們是用回紙袋和膠袋了。省長還提供了附加指引有關為何仍允許地盤繼續進行建設項目,還包括發佈一些條件,我們的檢查員將在項目現場執行這些條件。還有的是省長今天的命令指出,各個社區無權以自己的指令推翻省長的命令。
Good evening, everyone. Tonight's update below. There have been 36 positive COVID-19 cases involving Quincy residents, up from 24 yesterday. Eight people have recovered and 70 people are in self-isolation without symptoms.
I know all of our parents probably were not too thrilled to hear the Governor's order today closing all schools until at least May 4, but it is without question in the best interest of everyone's safety. The Governor today also prohibited the use of re-usable grocery bags for the time being. So we're going back to paper and plastic for a bit -- yes, I know, after we spent months telling you to give up the plastic. He also provided additional guidance on why construction projects are allowed to continue, including issuing a number of conditions that our inspectors will be enforcing on project sites. The order today stated that individual communities do not have the authority to overrule a state order with their own directives.
