Bethlehem Area School District Superintendent Joseph Roy has a message for parents: please get vaccinated against COVID-19.

In a short video posted on YouTube on July 15, Roy explained how the 25-49-year-old segment has the highest number of cases, according to state data. 

“The age category that by far has the highest percentage of cases, most recently making up almost 44% of all positive cases in the state, is the 25-to-49-year-old age group…and let’s face it, most of our parents are 25-to-49 years old,” Roy says. 

Roy ended the video by asking parents to protect their kids and keep the schools open by getting vaccinated.
