With the increase in COVID-19 cases, it is more important than ever to continue doing our part to slow the spread. Remember to wear your face mask, maintain social distancing, and wash your hands and surfaces frequently.

COVID-19 cases, hospitalizations, and deaths across the United States are rising. As cold weather moves in, people spend more time indoors, take steps to slow the spread of COVID-19. Wear a mask, stay at least 6 feet apart, avoid crowds, and wash your hands often. The more steps you take, the more you and your team mates, family and friends are protected against COVID-19. Additional information is available at https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-nCoV/index.html.
