“We unfortunately had two seniors in their early 70s pass away due to COVID-19 today. It’s painful to lose any member of our community due to this virus, especially our seniors. I extend my deepest condolences to all family and friends of the deceased,” Mayor Ravi Bhalla said in a statement.
Other data released by the city shows that 51 of their 167 cases are for residents ages 31 to 40, about 31 percent of their total cases.
The mayor also noted that with social gatherings prohibited ahead of the Easter and Passover holidays, religious leaders will be offering their services online.
Furthermore, while there is no obligation, he said that based on the advice of the city’s health officer, all residents are asked to consider wearing a face cover – such as a scarf or bandana – when leaving their home.
“This is a precaution that can protect both you and those that you may come into contact with when outside your home,” Bhalla said.
