On this icy Thursday let’s stay warm, safe and COVID-19 compliant.
Incidence rates dropped dramatically in Franklin County this week, while state and national numbers are dropping back to early winter levels. Experts predict another increase may occur due to non-compliance at Super Bowl parties.

Consider wearing double masks. The CDC announced Wednesday that virus transmission can be reduced by 96.5 percent if an infected person and uninfected person wear tightly fitted surgical masks or a cloth-and-surgical-mask combination.
Continue social distancing of at least six feet. Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth. Wash your hands frequently. Clean and sanitize your working and living spaces often.
