Remain Vigilant and Be Safe

  1. Keep a 6-foot distance with people from outside your household
  2. Cover your nose and mouth when inside a public space and when a 6-foot distance cannot be maintained outside
  3. Wash your hands for at least 20-seconds, frequently, and before and after you leave your house
  4. Sanitize personal items taken with you in public, such as your wallet, credit card, keys, eyewear, as well as your steering wheel and door handle
