We are still asking the public to make sure to practice the following-

1.) Handwashing- Please wash your hands frequently by using a anti-bacterial soap. Wash your hands for at least 20 seconds. (Sing the ABC song or Happy Birthday twice)

2.) Social Distancing- Keep 6 feet away from others and refrain from shaking hands or hugging.

3.) Cover your face when coughing/sneezing by using a tissue or your elbow. If you use your hands, WASH THEM IMMEDIATELY!

4.) STAY AT HOME IF YOU ARE SICK– If you are running a fever (100 or higher), coughing or a worsening cough, and shortness of breath, call your medical doctor and give them your symptoms. DO NOT show up there without calling them first as they will have certain protocols/precautions to follow.

5.) If you are out in the public, please wear a face covering (even if vaccinated). This is to protect anyone who may have an underlying chronic condition & the elderly.
