The state’s top health official says the key to slowing the spread of COVID-19 could be finding ways to reach the people who believe they’re the least likely to get infected or suffer ill effects.
Cara Christ said the biggest group of positive test results is now among those age 20 through 44.
“They’re likely not the ones that are going to have the outcomes and the risk factors from COVID-19,” she told Capitol Media Services.
“But we need everybody to keep in mind that all of us have connections to loved ones and family members that are high risk or people out in the community,” Christ said. “And that’s what we’re trying to protect by containing the spread.”
The trick now, she said, is crafting a message that is designed with that audience in mind.
