Everyone is encouraged to continue to take precautions to reduce the possible spread of COVID-19 in Warm Springs.  Continue to avoid crowded spaces especially indoors and consider wearing a facemask around groups.  Local COVID-19 data continues to be monitored and restrictions could be brought back if cases surge.  Everyone should have a COVID-19 home test kit on hand.  You can get one at Emergency Management or Fire & Safety.  Any positive test should be reported to the Health & Wellness Center.  And just a reminder that those 50 and older are eligible for a 2nd COVID-19 booster, just call to schedule.
