A few important reminders to help mitigate the spread of the coronavirus from Ed Davis, Hot Springs Fire chief and member of the local COVID-19 Task Force:
Wash your hands often, as it is the most effective way a person can avoid transmitting the COVID-19 virus.
Don’t touch your face or rub your eyes. Your eyes are an easy point for the virus to enter your body.
Practice social distancing, avoid unnecessary casual contact and keep six feet distance intervals between you and others while in public.
