Cold and Flu Season
We are so thankful our building has not had the flu bug visit us and our goal is to keep it that way! But it is still the peak of cold and flu season so just a reminder if you have any cold or flu symptoms please stay home until you're better. Whenever you or your loved one come in or leave our building take a second to wash your hands, it makes a big difference! The best way to prevent the spread of germs is good hand washing!
Remember to R.S.V.P.
