COVID-19 continues to have a major impact on our lives and Representative Tom Dent of the 13th Legislative District understands exactly how vicious the virus can be after he suffered a setback and was admitted to the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) on October 21, 2020. Representative Dent was successfully treated at the Samaritan Hospital in Moses Lake with REGN-COV2. “I cannot say enough about the quality of care and the dedication of the staff at Samaritan. We are truly fortunate to have such a high quality facility in the 13th district. I am on the road to recovery and continue with ongoing treatments as a precautionary measure; I feel stronger each day” states Representative Dent.
“Washington State is facing many serious challenges. More than ever we need to roll up our sleeves and identify solutions to get through these tough times. Becoming infected with COVID-19 was a reminder to me that there is a lot of work to do out there and I am ready to get started” says Representative Dent.
Representative Dent is at home recovering while revisiting his common-sense reforms and measures to improve government efficiencies. It appears not even COVID-19 can keep this seasoned legislator from doing what he says he was meant to do which is “to serve the great people of Washington state and the 13th district with heart and hard work”.
