COVID 19: We have to do the best that we can to socially distance from all of those folks. I am only going to places if I really need to. Wash hands (or use sanitizer) often for at least 20 seconds. Wash hands before touching eyes, nose or mouth. Use a cloth cover over mouth & nose when around others. Stay home as much as possible. Avoid sick people. Distance at least 6 feet from others.
