Following the proven public health guidance to slow the spread of COVID-19 continues to be extremely important for everyone to do. Please: 

1. Wash your hands often, for at least 20 seconds with warm soapy water. Use hand sanitizer if you do not have access to soap and water. 

2. Maintain physical distance between yourself and others of at least 6 feet or more. 

3. Wear masks in public spaces as required by City Ordinance and County Resolution. You must cover your nose and mouth for masks to be effective. 

4. Sanitize frequently touched surfaces and areas such as doorknobs, handles, cell phones, tablets, etc.

5. Stay home if you are sick. Regardless if you think it may be a cold, it could be allergies, but it also could be something worse.
