As we continue to see a surge in COVID-19 cases, please continue to do your part to help bring these numbers down. We can’t stress enough how important it is to follow guidelines set by the CDC. Wear a mask when in a crowd or outside your home. Wash your hands often. Practice social distancing by staying at least six feet apart and refraining from large gatherings. Remember that we are all in this together.
