Public health is a shared responsibility, and it is one we take very seriously. We are continuing to follow local, state and national public health updates and assessing our role in curbing the spread of COVID-19. We urge participants in all our programs to monitor their own health, stay home if they are sick or not feeling well, wash their hands often, wear a mask, and take appropriate physical distancing measures.
