HELP US SLOW THE SPREAD

  • While waiting for the vaccines to reach everyone, the CDC continues to remind us that the three most important ways to slow the spread and buy us a little more time include: (1) wearing a mask to protect yourself and others, (2) staying at least 6 feet away from others who don’t live with you, and avoid crowds, and (3) washing your hands often with soap and water for 20 seconds or use hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol.
  • It is also extremely important to STAY HOME and isolate yourself from others if you are not feeling well. Do not socialize, go out for meals, go to work, or participate in recreational activities if you are feeling sick. Be smart. Be safe. And protect your loved ones and neighbors.
