NO RESTRICTIONS HAVE BEEN RELAXED OR LIFTED
Continue to follow our SAFE protocols. The CDC and the MD Department of Health has reinforced that this virus continues to spread through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs, sneezes or talks and between people who do not adhere to social distancing.
As always, tips to slow the spread include:
-If you feel sick, stay home. Do not go to work. Contact your medical provider.
-If someone in your household has tested positive for the coronavirus, keep the entire household at home. Do not go to work. Do not go to school. Contact your medical provider.
-Even if you are young, or otherwise healthy, you are at risk and your activities can increase the risk for others. It is critical that you do your part to stop the spread of the coronavirus.
-Avoid social gatherings in groups of more than 10 people.
-Avoid eating or drinking at bars, restaurants, and food courts – use drive-thru, pickup, or delivery options.
-Avoid discretionary travel, shopping trips, and social visits.
-WEAR YOUR MASKS
