For the health of your family, neighbors, and friends, please wear a mask in public, maintain a six (6) foot distance from others and avoid social gatherings.  It is a personal decision we all make when we choose to socialize outside of our households. We risk infecting others with our choices to interact with people who are not within our close family circle and we may be impacting our most vulnerable residents should we be in close contact.   

 

CDHD would like to remind everyone to please mask-up in public and help protect one another.  Masking is the next best thing to a vaccine.
