“As we continue to see additional aspects of our daily life return in new ways, we must be sure to keep the threat of this virus at the front of our minds. Even if you are able to visit a particular business, park, or other location, that does not mean that you will be free of risk while you are there. Please continue to use your best judgment, informed by state leaders and health experts, regarding when it is safe to leave your home and how to protect yourself when you do so by wearing a mask and practicing social distancing.”
