NOTICE

An inherent risk of exposure to COVID-19 exists in any public place where people are present. COVID-19 is an extremely contagious disease that can lead to severe illness and even death. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), older adults and individuals with certain underlying medical conditions are especially vulnerable. For these reasons, individuals should carefully assess and monitor their own health and safety before agreeing to a shift.
