Why should you be concerned about COVID-19?

We should all be concerned about the spread of this disease, especially among our elderly and those with compromised immune systems. People can have COVID-19, be contagious, and not show any symptoms. Although you may not feel the effects of this disease, you could still spread it to someone else.

Following the simple recommended safety measures such as wearing face coverings and socially distancing helps protect all of our communities. We are stronger when we work together.
