“This data tells us, that regardless if we live in urban, suburban or rural areas, it is imperative that all of us continue to stay home as much as possible. When we absolutely must go out – whether in your neighborhood or to grocery shop – we must maintain a distance of at least 6 feet from each other,” said Dr. Peter Beilenson, Director of the Department of Health Services.
We all need to do our part to slow the spread of COVID-19. Remember, you still can go outside – just keep your distance and don’t gather with others. When you are out in public spaces, be sure to not touch your face, and wash your hands or use hand sanitizer after touching shared surfaces.
