We are combating COVID-19. And you can too! Here are some ideas to stay healthy and help our community.
Our team is committed to ensuring the health and safety of our patients, staff and community, but we can’t do it alone. As a community, we can unite to make an impact!
We need you to stay home, if you need to go out, practice social distancing. Social distancing is one of the most important ways to stop the spread of COVID-19. Together, our community must commit to social, but not emotional, distancing. There are many new ways that we can continue to be there for others.
