As the state continues to relax restrictions let us remain vigilant. Don’t become slack in following basic safety precautions. Wash your hands often. Cover your mouth when you cough or sneeze. Wear a mask when necessary, especially when with people outside your household or in large gatherings. Let’s continue to do our part as we head into a state of normalcy.
