Planning for holidays should include Covid-19 SAFETY practices. Our Warm Springs community Covid-19 numbers have been great for this week as numbers of Covid-19 positives have increasing around us. Halloween is a fun holiday and must have parents and kids not doing the traditional knocking on doors to ask for candy. Please plan for alternate ways to participate in Halloween. You can make trick-or-treating safer by avoiding direct contact with trick-or-treaters; by giving out treats outdoors, if possible; by setting up a station with individually bagged treats for kids to take; and by wearing a mask.
