On Wednesday, Moore attributed the region’s recent success in bringing case counts down to “health restrictions, paired with the diligence and sacrifices of local residents during the holiday season.”

He continued by thanking locals for abiding by public health measures, and asked residents to continue their efforts through the new state of emergency, which ends Feb. 11.

“We are not immune to outbreaks and we cannot become complacent. The continued vigilance of residents is essential to help keep our community safe and lift public health restrictions as soon as possible,” he said.
