Please continue to wear masks, social distance and only gather with members of your household. As Labor Day Weekend approaches in September, it’s very important to plan to only gather with those that you live with during this time. COVID spreads at gatherings.
Please protect yourself and others and help us to get those numbers down so that we can get back to gathering again soon.
Stay safe Ventura County!
