After about two years of delivering a weekly virtual news conference on the state of the COVID-19 pandemic in the New River Health District, director Noelle Bissell conducted her last scheduled one today. There were a lot of lessons learned over the past two years says Bissell.  As COVID-19 transitions from “pandemic” to “endemic” Bissell says the local health district looks to focus on other issues, including bringing immunizations up to date for local school children.
