While still far better than other counties, we are seeing more cases here. I know that as long as this drags on, the harder it is to not stay vigilant. Nonetheless, if we want to get back to normal as soon as possible, we need to stay on top of things. I am currently working on getting approval for more outdoor activities. They do need to be rolled out in an orderly fashion so that if we see an anomalous increase n cases, we know what we did wrong. ~ Steve

There has been some confusion over what is actually “mandated”. In this case, please note words like “as much as possible”, “should be avoided”, etc. If there is a part of your service that cannot comply, you can still do it.
