Fourth of July Holiday Celebrations

With the Fourth of July holiday weekend approaching, CCHHS wants to remind everyone to continue following preventative actions such as keeping 6 feet of space between you and others, wearing a face covering, washing your hands often with soap and water for 20 seconds, staying home in you are sick, and avoiding large group gatherings to slow the spread of COVID-19.
