Rowan County Public Health (RCPH) has launched a new COVID-19 health campaign called #RowanSTRONGER. Our goal is to ensure that RCPH is prepared for any future variants, while working towards improving countywide community health. If we can transition our stance from treating a pandemic to managing an endemic, we can aim to improve vaccination rates, lower viral transmission, and increase awareness of COVID-19 safety.
