As we all enjoy this beautiful weather and our region begins to open up more businesses, there are a few important things to remember. It is still recommended that you maintain social distance and wear a mask or face covering while in shared public spaces. Large group gatherings of more than 10 people are still not allowed. We are starting to see an increase in individuals testing positive for COVID-19 who were exposed in large group settings. As more businesses and activities begin to open, we understand no one wishes to be quarantined. You can reduce your risk by social distancing and wearing masks or face coverings.
It is our desire is to continue to open more businesses while maintaining our County metrics. Here are a few different ways you can safely enjoy the warm weather:
Get Outdoors – Go for a hike, bike, walk or have a picnic with your household while still maintaining social distance from others
Game Night – Take on a puzzle or pull out a board game.
Drive-in Movies – Local drive-in movie theaters have opened with some new rules. Be sure to visit their websites for more information before attending.
Outdoor Cookout – Order from your favorite restaurant or start up the grill and have a family barbeque at home with the members of your household.
Remember to be safe, practice social distancing and help protect all of our loved ones.
