Reminder: Face Coverings Still Required
The latest statistics from Contra Costa Health Services show that the number of cases of coronavirus in the county continue to rise. As such, we would like to remind everyone that even though many businesses have reopened, and others will reopen next week, facial coverings are still required. The SIP order maintains that facial coverings should be worn when inside an establishment, or outside if there is no way to maintain a proper social distance.
In order to slow the rise in new cases and the spread of the transmission, it is important to remember that the virus has not gone away and precautions must still be taken in order to keep everyone safe.
