246,749 cases, 2,687 deaths in Idaho alone. These numbers grow every single day. Every single day lives are lost. To see these numbers go down, there must be a change. That change begins with us; Timberline High School. 

 

COVID-19 will continue to disrupt routines, work, learning and most importantly, will continue to take lives. Luckily, thanks to the CDC and scientists like Kizzmekia Corbett, we have a weapon to help us fight this virus: the COVID-19 vaccine. The vaccine saves lives. The vaccine protects YOU from the virus. USA Today establishes the fact that unvaccinated people are 10 times more likely to be hospitalized if they get the virus and 11 times more likely to die. The vaccine lowers these chances. According to a New York Times study, the chances of you getting the virus after you are vaccinated is only 1 in 5,000. Even though the vaccine lowers your risk of getting the virus, it doesn’t mean you’re off the hook. Stay safe and stay smart.

The CDC confirms that getting the vaccine helps stop the spread and keeps you less at risk from the virus.”

To keep each other safe, following these guidelines is a necessity. If we do our part, if we work together to keep each other safe, cases will stop popping up at our school. We will be able to stay in session as well as be able to fully enjoy the events that once seemed normal. If we work together to stop the spread of COVID-19, we will help take down the pandemic once and for all.
