Residents can help slow the spread of COVID-19 in our community by avoiding crowds and keeping 6 feet from others, washing hands often, wearing face coverings in public, and staying home when sick. Individuals age 65 and older and those with medical issues, such as diabetes, heart or lung disease, cancer, or weakened immune system are at a higher risk of getting very sick or dying of COVID-19. State and local health officials continue to recommend that at-risk individuals and older adults stay home as much as possible and avoid face-to-face contact with others.
