General public health officers and neighborhood leaders listened to feedback relating to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic Saturday for the duration of a “neighborhood dialogue” at the A single in A Million Resource Heart in Springfield.

The local community team, alongside with Ward 3 Ald. Roy Williams, Jr. sponsored the celebration, which noticed officers from Memorial Wellbeing and the Sangamon County Department of Public Health and fitness workforce up with state Sen. Doris Turner, D-Springfield, Springfield Mayor Jim Langfelder and Springfield Community Educational facilities Superintendent Jennifer Gill to converse on how the pandemic has afflicted – and continues to have an affect on – daily daily life in the city.

Doris Williams, chairwoman of the A single In A Million team, said the reason of the celebration was to remind people today that COVID remains a issue for several people today in society and especially people of color and individuals with pre-existing disorders.
