Spartanburg, South Carolina (WSPA) – Promote vaccination as leaders in the city of Spartanburg are working on another peak of COVID cases. A handful of city officials take the virus seriously and ask people to get vaccinated when it’s their turn.
“I think it’s the first time I’ve been afraid I’m not on this planet,” said Erika Brown, a Spartanberg city council member.
Erika Brown, a member of the Spartan Berg City Council, is only increasing the number of people who have stories to share in the area.
“I can tell myself that Santa brought COVID for Christmas,” Brown said.
But her story is becoming less unique.
“Our concerns about the pandemic epidemic are more important than ever,” said Chris Story’s City Manager, Spartanberg.
Mayor Spartanberg’s Chris Story showed city leaders the latest number of COVID cases that have plagued his community during a city council meeting on Monday night.
“We had 220 per day, but now we have the highest 7-day moving average of 305 we’ve ever encountered,” Story said.
That is why leaders are promoting prevention such as vaccination.
“I’m wearing a face mask, but so far I’m fine,” said James Marines, who lives in Spartanberg.
Residents of Spartanburg, such as James Marines, are ready to take a shot.
Others have not yet fully participated.
“I don’t know, I’m just scared of the vaccine,” said a Spartanberg resident of Chelsea Cannon.
However, some are asking others to do what they can to help the community.
“As soon as it’s an opportunity for me, I believe in science, so I’ll sign up for it,” Brown said.
