COVID-19 Resources

The Covid-19 Pandemic has had a major impact on the United States and especially the State of Florida. As a respiratory illness with the ability to spread from person to person it is important to stay informed and take precautions against Covid-19. There are multiple resources and guidelines available to help ensure the safety of yourself, your family and others. 

Here are some actions you can take to slow the spread of Covid-19:

  1.     Wash your hands regularly, with soap and warm water for 20 seconds
  2.     Avoid going out if sick
  3.     Avoid touching your face
  4.     Wear a face mask while in public

Together we can slow the spread of Covid-19, and be one step closer to returning life to normal. For more info on Covid-19 check out these resources:
