Local COVID - 19 testing sites

Minimizing Your Risk of COVID - 19 Infection This Holiday Season As we enter into winter we expect to see significantly rising COVID - 19 infection rates. While a vaccine is on the horizon, we must double down on our health precautions and try to keep our families and community safe until everyone is able to be vaccinated. Many of us are tired and want a normal life, but now is not the time to relax or give up.

• Health officials recommend limiting or eliminating socializing with those outside your own household this holiday season . Rising infection rates appear to be driven in part by small social gatherings. • Remember that even if someone feels well, they may be able to spread COVID - 19 to you and your loved ones. • If you must gather, choose an outdoor setting as weather permits. • Small indoor social gatherings should maintain at least six (6) feet of distance, before, during, and after the meal. • Consider single - use disposable utensils and dishware for serving and eating meals. • COVID - 19 spreads through the air. Encourage guests to wear masks except to eat and to drink while widely separated. Have an extra supply of masks, disinfectant wipes, hand sanitizers that contain at least 60% alcohol, and tissues on hand. • Wash and disinfect guest areas before and after holiday gatherings.
