2.     Maintain physical distance between yourself and others of at least 6 feet or more.
3.     Wear masks in public spaces as required by City Ordinance and County Resolution. You must cover your nose and mouth for masks to be effective.
4.     By Public Health Order, gatherings are limited to 15 persons or less (with certain exceptions for establishments).
5.     Sanitize frequently touched surfaces and areas such as doorknobs, handles, cell phones, tablets, etc.
6.     Stay home if you are sick. Regardless if you think it may be a cold, it could be allergies, but it also could be something worse.
