We understand it’s been difficult to not spend the holidays with those you love. Now more than ever, we’re relying on your on-going sacrifice to help us keep our community safe. Please keep your ‘bubbles’ small, organize online/virtual gatherings when possible, and continue to practice social distancing, wash your hands regularly and clean frequently touched surfaces in your home.
Our emergency response team and Unified Command have planned for this. Our protocols have been very successful to date and we are ready for all possibilities.
Updates will be provided as they become available.
