SAFELY ENJOY NEW YEAR’S EVE BY FOLLOWING CDC GUIDELINES
• The CDC has advised that the safest way to celebrate the New Year is to celebrate at home with the people who live with you or virtually with friends and family. Avoid attending large gatherings this year. Staying home is the best way to protect yourself and others. Consider other activities to celebrate New Year’s Eve, such as:
o Have virtual celebrations with loved ones.
o Plan a virtual countdown to midnight with friends.
o Watch a live-streamed firework display, concert, First Night event, or other New Year’s programming from your home, such as the Times Square New Year’s Eve ball drop.
• If you host a celebration, talk with guests ahead of time to set expectations for celebrating together, limit the number of guests, request guests to bring their own food, drinks, plates, and utensils. Keep celebrations outdoors, and ask guests to wear their masks. Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces and items between uses. It’s okay if you decide to postpone or cancel your gathering. Do what is best for you, your family, and your friends.

WEARING A MASK COMMUNICATES KINDNESS AND CONCERN FOR OTHERS
- A county-wide mask mandate remains in effect, requiring face coverings by all persons visiting or working in any businesses, establishment, or residential buildings. Face coverings MUST also be worn by all persons in outdoor public places where social distancing of 6 feet or more is not possible.
- The Town is urging its residents to do more. As you enjoy the beautiful outdoor spaces in Town, such as the Lake Trail and playground at Seaview Park, please show kindness and concern for others by wearing your mask when others are around, even if they are more than 6 feet away.
- There are so many factors we cannot control in this pandemic. The one element we can control is wearing a mask. Please do your part and be an example in your circle of influence. Wearing a mask does help mitigate the virus’ spread.
HELP US SLOW THE SPREAD
- While waiting for the vaccines to reach every American, the CDC is urging everyone to remember the three most important ways to slow the spread and buy us a little more time: (1) wear a mask to protect yourself and others and stop the spread of COVID-19, (2) stay at least 6 feet away from others who don’t live with you, and avoid crowds, and (3) wash 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. You should not assume it is allegories or a common cold. Be smart. Be safe. And protect your loved ones and neighbors.
