PHYSICAL DISTANCING ORDERS !!
 Gatherings of more than 50 people are banned.!!
👨👩👧👦 You may now carefully expand your “social bubble” (i.e. allowing hugs between households if they agree to be in each others’ bubbles), keeping in mind that every person added impacts everyone in the bubble.
👩👩👦↔️👨👧👧 Gather in small groups of no more than six people, but continue to maintain your physical distance between social bubbles.
🌳 Outdoor gatherings are safer than indoor gatherings.
🤒 Self-isolate if you are sick, even if it is not COVID-19.
