The Global Pandemic has shaken the whole world—not just Silver Lake or California. COVID-19 has left many of us shaken, hurt, and isolated from our loved ones and community. It’s been nearly two years since the start of the pandemic. But has anything changed, or have we simply pushed the pandemic to the backburner?
Unfortunately, there has only been a rise in COVID-19 cases across the whole state of California since the pandemic first began in March of 2020. There was a spike in cases in early January 2021 and in February 2022. The total reported cases of COVID-19 across the state of California is 9,214,036. However, these numbers may be rising due to tests being widely available.

But with proper safety procedures and people acting responsibly, we can prevent and avoid the spread of COVID-19.
COVID-19 Is Still a Risk
It’s nearly safe to say we’ve all gotten used to The Global Pandemic. COVID-19 has become an integral part of our communities and consciousness, for better or for worse. However, it’s important to remember that COVID-19 is still a risk to be cautious of. Being negligent only furthers the rampage and destruction that the virus has already delivered.
Getting vaccinated, staying home when you’re sick, washing your hands, and practicing social distancing is the best way you can prevent the spread of COVID-19. Protect yourself, your loved ones, and your community from COVID-19 by being responsible. Stay strong, Silver Lake!
