Kudos to the health department

This week’s bouquets go to:

From Bonnie Westin of Gladstone:

The employees of the Delta/Menominee Health Department deserve our gratitude. Right from the get-go of this pandemic, they have gone above and beyond the call of duty. We were tested early on because of an exposure and one of the nurses called us at 8:30 in the evening (well beyond working hours) to inform us of our results. She said it was normal for them to be taking their work home during these abnormal times.

When we went to receive our first immunization, the logistics were perfectly in place. Signs and directions were clearly marked, personnel were friendly and professional, and the entire process was efficiently executed.

Please appreciate these dedicated employees and volunteers. Any delay in getting an appointment is not their fault. They are doing their best and are dependent on the supplies they receive. They deserve praise, not criticism.

Thank you, Delta/Menominee Health Department! You rock!!
