Please take the time to read these articles on wearing masks. It is still particularly important that we slow the spread of this virus. While a vaccine is on the way, it will take months to get all those who want and need a vaccine to be able to obtain one. Please be kind and wear a mask when in public areas. This protects you, those around you and the businesses in our county.
