Each summer, as we enjoy the welcome warmth and sunshine, we also keep safety in mind for ourselves and for our families. This year, that’s more important than ever. It only takes a quick glance at national headlines to be reminded that COVID-19 won’t go away simply because it’s summertime. Nor will the need to protect ourselves and the most vulnerable. So it’s critically important to keep taking the kinds of precautions that we know are working – masks, social distancing and frequent hand cleaning – to help keep COVID-19 in check. Let’s celebrate the season, safely.
