Stay at Home Order:

**Be sure to check your local government's website for local information.**

You can leave home to shop for groceries and pick up medications.

Essential businesses are open.  These include places like grocery stores, gas stations, banks, hardware stores, post offices, some public transportation, and restaurants for take-out only.

You can continue walking your pets and consider sitting outside on the front porch. Some parks are still open, too!  Just remember to stay away from playgrounds and maintain a safe 6-foot distance between you and others.

Healthy Practices:
  • Wash hands with soap and water for 20+ seconds.

  • Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when you cough or sneeze.

  • Throw away tissues after coughing, sneezing, or blowing your nose.

  • Avoid touching eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.

  • Stay at home from work or school, if you are sick.

  • Avoid close contact with people who are ill.

  • Clean and disinfect surfaces that are frequently touched.
