Public Health’s key takeaways include:

  • Reduce the number of close contacts outside your household, and avoid closed-in or crowded spaces. 
  • Stay home if sick. 
  • Wash/sanitize your hands, cover your cough and physically distance when you are with people outside your household. 
  • If you cannot physically distance, you should wear a mask to help reduce your risk. 
  • Get a flu shot.

We all need to work together to help stop the spread of COVID-19 and to keep our community safe. Do your part!
