Please know that we are closely monitoring the ongoing situation with the coronavirus (COVID-19) and coronavirus related illnesses. It is important to remember that the more closely we interact with others, and the longer that interaction lasts, the higher the risk of COVID-19 spread. Please also remember that this situation is unprecedented and that THE PANDEMIC HAS NOT ENDED - COVID-19 TRANSMISSION IS STILL OCCURRING. It is critical to continue to practice social distancing, hand hygiene, and wearing a face covering in public.

Health experts and scientific studies have shown the vaccines are overwhelmingly safe and effective and are the best weapon against infectious new variants of the coronavirus.
In most cases, symptoms appear 2-14 days after exposure and include fever, cough and shortness of breath. Some people may only experience mild symptoms, while others, especially older adults or persons with compromised immune systems, COVID-19 can be very serious, even resulting in death.
Anyone experiencing symptoms should isolate themselves from others to avoid infecting anyone else. Seek medical help, but be sure to alert the medical team of symptoms and the possibility that you’ve been infected (recent contact with someone else who has the virus or travel to an area where the virus is spreading). If you have a face mask, be sure to wear it to help prevent the spread of the virus.
The CDC continues to recommend the following to prevent the illness:
- Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
- When greeting someone, don’t shake hands or hug.
- Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol. Always wash hands with soap and water if they are visibly dirty.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth.
- Stay home when you are sick.
- Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
- Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe.
General immune system health also is very important in warding off the COVID-19 virus, as well as seasonal colds and the flu.
