Public health officials relay it is very important for the public to remain vigilant about following recommended safety measures and business/activity guidelines in order to keep themselves and those around them safe and healthy.
Those measures include:

  • Wearing a Face Covering appropriately; Cover your mouth and nose any time you are in public or around those who aren’t in your household bubble.
  • Washing Your Hands; Wash for at least 20 seconds with soap and water or wash thoroughly with hand sanitizer if soap and water aren’t available.
  • Physical Distancing; Maintain at least 6 feet between you and others who aren’t part of your household bubble.
  • Avoid Gatherings; The more people you meet with, the higher your risk of getting infected or of you infecting someone else.
