-Please, wear a face covering in all indoor businesses and public indoor spaces.
-Please, wash your hands and use hand sanitizer frequently, and physically distance by staying 6 feet away from people you do not live with.
-If you do become ill, call your health care provider before you go in to be tested. If you are ill with any COVID-19 symptoms or test positive, you must stay home until you are fever-free for 24 hours and have improvement of respiratory symptoms OR 10 days--whichever is longer.
