Slowing the Spread of COVID-19 – a Reminder

With school starting soon and COVID-19 cases continuing to spike, it is important that we don’t forget the importance of healthy sanitation habits, like washing our hands, wearing masks and staying six feet apart. These steps are vital for keeping our vulnerable populations safe.

Minnesota is still seeing spikes in COVID cases and the second wave has been bigger than the first because we are not taking the precautions that we need to stop the virus from spreading. If we want life to return to normal sooner rather than later, we need to keep ourselves and those around us safe by taking precautions.

Each of us can make a difference by limiting our social circles, hanging out with friends outdoors and staying six feet apart when seeing people. Wearing a mask, especially when we go indoors, is an important safeguard we should all be practicing. If we do not actively combat the spread of COVID, it will only continue to get worse.

Question: What have you done to connect with friends and family while remaining socially distant? Let us know on Facebook!
