We can’t win the war against COVID-19 without YOU!

Given the recent surge in cases, please continue to take precautions against COVID-19. Practice proper hand-washing or use hand sanitizer. Practice safe social distancing and consider wearing a face mask or covering, especially in large gatherings of people. Avoid touching the face or shaking hands. Disinfect frequently-touched surfaces such as doorknobs and handrails. Stay home if you are sick.

Don't forget your mask!

Post Date:07/10/2020 11:46 AM

The CDC recommends that people wear a mask or face covering in public settings and when around people who don’t live in your household, especially when other social distancing measures are difficult to maintain.

Even simple cloth face coverings may help prevent people who unknowingly have COVID-19 from spreading the virus to others by preventing respiratory droplets from travelling through the air when the wearer speaks, breaths, coughs, or sneezes. 

Please note that face coverings should NOT be worn by children under the age of 2 or anyone who has trouble breathing, is unconscious, incapacitated, or otherwise unable to remove the mask without assistance.

Until a vaccine is available, the universal use of facemasks in public settings is an essential part of our fight against the spread of COVID-19, but a mask doesn't do much good if you don't wear it properly!
