As we continue with the winter weather, where indoor congregating is likely to continue, and as a result of the already increasing number of Covid-19 cases around the state, we are encouraging parents, teens, children and business owners to continue their responsible approach to slowing the spread of Covid-19 by:

  • Following social distance guidelines (indoors and outdoors)
  • Wearing masks whenever you are around other people. (Including children over two years of age)
  • Washing hands often
  • Disinfecting frequently touched surfaces
  • Staying home if you don’t feel well
  • Keeping the elderly and those with preexisting conditions distanced

Please continue to do your part for the sake of your family, friends, and your community!

We will continue to share information on this and other cases when appropriate.
