More dangerous variants occur when there are more mutations. Right now, we don’t know to what extent current vaccines can protect us from these emerging mutations.

Drainage District Approves Operating Budget

The Port Ludlow Drainage District (PLDD) Board of Commissioners approved a 2021 operating budget of $85,160 with a $60,000 assessment at its November 12 meeting.
