Steve and Sally Minton, owners of BoroTakeOut, launched Fuel the Fight – Gift Cards for Heroes program in March as a way to help local businesses and Healthcare and Public Safety Workers get through this very hard time. Their company, BoroTakeOut, is well known for their delivery service for popular local restaurants in the Boro. They have a call center in downtown Statesboro and relationships with many restaurants and businesses in Statesboro, so it is only natural that they stepped up and helped in every way possible.
This program proved to very popular, but has slowed significantly, as things seemed to be improving with COVID-19. However, over the last few weeks, EGRMC has seen their largest number of COVID-19 patients admitted. When BoroTakeOut started this program, the most EGRMC cared for at one time was five. Today they have 22 COVID-19 patients, five of which are on vents. Bulloch EMS has now transported 46 probable COVID-19 patients.
In addition, Statesboro’s long-term care facilities are seeing an uptick in positive cases. One nursing home has 15 staff members who are COVID-19 positive.
