Our thoughts and prayers are with the family of the decedent.

As always, please continue to follow all guidelines and protocols, continue to wear a face-covering in public & private areas, especially when you cannot physically distance, wash hands frequently, disinfect hard surfaces, and of course, social/physical distance by 6 feet and STAY CONNECTED!

Please make sure neighbors are checking on neighbors, especially the elderly.

Please continue to be diligent, Jefferson!
