To the editor — I want to thank Bob Romero for his letter of June 26. I agree wholeheartedly! I especially liked his statement that the Yakima Health District "science and data" provide a significant sample size and lead to different conclusions than the state is drawing. He was right. And it is time to reopen our community and local businesses with appropriate safeguards and protocols. Thank you for stating so well what I already thought.
