Take COVID-19 Seriously

As more and more businesses and venues open up, there are many who are under the misimpression that because these entities are opening up that COVID-19 is over. This is not the case.
Now, more than ever, as the state is reopening, if anything, we must be more vigilant than ever in protecting our health and safety and take the necessary precautions against the virus.
Continue to wash your hands thoroughly and hand sanitize when handwashing is not an option.
Cover coughs and sneezes, and stay home if you are sick.
Try to avoid touching your face.
Wear a mask when going shopping or into places where multiple people are gathered.
If you are sick, stay home, and don’t expose others.
If you are a senior citizen, take advantage of senior shopping hours to avoid large groups of people.
Use common sense.
