Continue practicing basic mitigation measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19:
• Isolate yourself if you feel any cold-like symptoms and get tested for COVID-19 as soon as possible.
• If you are unvaccinated:
o Avoid crowded places and gatherings; keep social circles small.
o Stay at least 6 feet away from people outside of your household.
o Have a mask on when you are around people outside of your household – even if you can maintain a 6-foot distance from others.
• Wash your hands often and disinfect commonly touched surfaces and objects.
Let us work together to keep Wrangell safe as we continue to transition out of the Pandemic.
