With Memorial Day weekend approaching, residents are being urged to continue practicing guidelines put in place to help prevent the spread of COVID-19.
Montgomery County Health Officer Dr. Travis Gayles says this goes for all county residents – including high school seniors anticipating the “beach week” tradition.
“While all of us want to go to the beach and have barbeques, I encourage you to stay home. Do not gather in groups of more than ten people. If we don’t remain vigilant, we risk undoing the progress we have made since March,” said Dr. Gayles.
