• Wildfire smoke is in the air, flu season is beginning and COVID-19 continues to spread in our community. Exposure to any of these things can make people cough or sneeze. COVID-19 spreads through respiratory droplets, so if you have the virus and you are coughing or sneezing for any reason, you could spread COVID19 to people around you. If you feel sick, please stay home and away from others.
