How you can do your Part
How You Can Do Your Part
*First and foremost, please stay at home for anything other than essential activities such as groceries or picking up prescriptions.
Staying at home is critical. This means no parties, no gatherings at friends’ homes, no bar-b-ques or weddings; it means not attending church services or many of the other social activities we all enjoy. We cannot stress enough the importance of staying at home and away from other people who do not live in your home.
*Wash your hands with soap, for at least 20 seconds, multiple times a day.
*Do not touch your face. [Do you know the average person touches their face up to 23 times per hour? Whoa!]
