We write to express our great appreciation for Dr. Nirav Shah and his steady leadership during the initial stages of the COVID-19 pandemic.

His regular, clear and honest explanations of what was known, unknown and becoming known reflected the reality of a rapidly developing event.

His consistent reminder of what we could do to minimize the spread or avoid infection altogether was very helpful.

Maine was blessed to have him in the appropriate role at a crucial time. (Dr. Nirav Shah makes his final rounds in Maine, Jan. 24)

We wish he was not leaving, but wish him the very best in his new position.

Stan and Carolyn Tanner, Poland
