Whether this is a result of folks letting their guard down over the Labor Day weekend or since then with gatherings or traveling – it is critical that everyone discipline themselves to follow all Covid-19 protocols.

For our youth to get back to in-person school, for businesses to be able to return to regular operations, for families to be able to travel and visit grandparents in other communities – we all have to do everything we can to lessen the opportunities for Covid-19 to spread.
