COVID-19 Testing & Information
Anyone who is experiencing COVID-19 symptoms or has been in contact with someone confirmed to have COVID-19 should be tested for COVID-19 as soon as possible.
In addition, those with additional risk factors such as a compromised immune system or a serious chronic medical condition or those who work to support critical infrastructure such as health care facilities, grocery stores, daycares, factories, utilities, gas stations, etc. may choose to get tested more regularly.

How to Wear a Fabric Mask
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), in general, the closer and longer you interact with others, the greater the risk of spreading COVID-19. If you decide to participate in public activities, continue to protect yourself by practicing everyday preventive actions. Whenever possible, keep a cloth face covering, tissues, and a hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol on hand. Please click on the following images to enlarge.
