“We continue to hear about instances of large gatherings in the community.  We can’t stress enough how dangerous ignoring the state’s shelter-in-place order can be.  People who do so not only put their own health at risk, but the health of their loved ones.  Irresponsible actions make it more likely that we will continue to see waves of COVID patients for some time to come.  The Phoebe Family continues to be on the frontline of the COVID-19 battle, but it will take a community effort to win that battle,” said Scott Steiner, Phoebe Putney Health System Chief Executive Officer.
