In the days ahead, we encourage everyone to follow personal hygiene guidelines and social distancing recommendations, which means avoiding large gatherings and unnecessary travel as much as possible. It is hoped that, if we all make this effort, it will reduce the spread of Coronavirus.
“On behalf of the entire Commission, I’d like to remind everyone that as we face this unprecedented challenge, some people may feel stress, or even panic, about their personal health, or that of loved ones. Let’s remember to be kind and patient with each other. Some people may feel socially isolated. Please call and check on your neighbors and friends, and encourage walks around the community. While we must temporarily embrace social distancing, we are a community that cares about each other and we will get through this, together,
” said Mayor Michelle J. Gomez.
