You have been asked to drastically change your day-to-day behavior to help our community stop the spread of the COVID-19 virus. Staying in your home and limiting your contact with other people is a very specific way you can help. You can still do essential grocery shopping. You can still go outside to get some fresh air or a quick walk, but keep those trips focused and maintain distance from your neighbors.

Together we can work to flatten the curve, reduce passing COVID-19 respiratory disease on to other people, or putting ourselves at risk of getting sick.​
