Although no new cases were reported today, we still want to stress that we have not reached our peak. It is VERY IMPORTANT all residents continue to stay home as much as possible, wear a face covering and stay 6 feet away from others when venturing out for groceries, medical care, or work, wash hands with soap for 20 seconds often, and clean & disinfect commonly touched surfaces regularly.
