Rise in virus cases locally disappointing

Please be on guard out there as our region sees an uptick in COVID virus cases.

Sadly, Clinton County has been labeled a hot spot by the state Health Department-CDC as they track cases.

Centre and Lycoming counties are not faring very well, either.


Mostly because not enough people are vaccinated.

Say what you want.

You can plead that it’s your “choice” or “freedom” to not get vaccinated.

But understand that freedom and responsibility are really the same thing.

Including a responsibility to others … to help protect others by protecting yourself.

After all, what good is your “freedom” if you’re not well enough or even alive to enjoy it?
