Statement from Orange County Mayor Jerry L. Demings | May 28, 2021
“There is much to look forward to on this Memorial Day weekend. Coronavirus infections and deaths continue to decline. Fully vaccinated family members can enjoy their time with one another – both indoors and outdoors – without a mask.
Right now, 53.96 percent of Orange County residents have received at least one dose of the vaccine. Our 14-day rolling positivity rate is 4.7 percent. These are great numbers that we want to maintain.
I ask any resident who has not been vaccinated to please do so. Please help us contain this deadly disease, and continue our return to normalcy. We do not want to see a spike in COVID-19 infections like we did after Memorial Day 2020.
Have a safe weekend, and may we all continue to honor the military personnel who made the ultimate sacrifice serving our country.”
– Jerry L. Demings, Orange County Mayor
