Please continue to practice COVID-safe best practices to prevent the spread of the virus and potentially causing your loved ones, community members, or yourself to become ill. If you must leave your house, always wear a mask, social distance at 6 feet or more, and wash your hands frequently. Avoid indoor gatherings and events. Do enjoy the outdoors and make sure to get plenty of exercise and sunshine. We look forward to the next year and the coming of the vaccine!
