As our weather is starting to change to the Fall season and were spending more time indoors, I wanted to take this opportunity to remind everyone of our COVID-19 guidelines.  It is our hope that the threat from this virus will pass quickly; however, until that time, we need everyone to continue to be mindful of the dangers to you and others, posed by this virus along with the upcoming flu season.  Please continue to wear a mask at all times when social …
