Social distancing will need to be practiced by all. Limiting face-to-face contact with others is the best way to reduce the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19).

Social distancing, also called “physical distancing,” means keeping space between yourself and other people outside of your home. To practice social or physical distancing, one must stay at least 6 feet (about 2 arms’ length) from others.  Additionally all must answer a Pre-event Checklist.
