Staying Safe During COVID
COVID 19 is still present! It’s important to continue to stay safe and do your part to help stop the spread. Wear a mask to protect yourself and others and stop the spread of COVID-19. Stay at least 6 feet from others who don’t live with you. Avoid crowds and poorly ventilated spaces. The more people you are in contact with, the more likely you are to be exposed to COVID-19.
Getting a flu vaccine during 2020-2021 is more important than ever because of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. While getting a flu vaccine will not protect against COVID-19 there are many important benefits.
