Even when the pandemic is just a bad memory, masking will not only be permitted, but encouraged, especially during flu season or whenever there is an outbreak of colds within our community.

We have learned much from the pandemic. In order to help mitigate the spread of any viral or bacterial air borne disease, weather permitting, we will leave our windows open and our three ceiling fans running. In addition, we have three state-of-the-art, powerful HEPA filters to aid in sterilizing and circulating the air up to four times an hour
