From TN Gov. Lee,
The CDC advises that "the best way to prevent illness is to avoid being exposed to this virus," and the best way to avoid being exposed to the virus is to remain home except as necessary to engage in essential activities

All Tennesseans must do their part by staying at home whenever possible for a limited period of time to avoid exposure to, and slow the spread of, this virus, which will limit the burden on health care resources and allow normal activities to resume sooner

From the Daily Times, "The number of COVID-19 cases in Blount County has reached double digits, the Tennessee Department of Health reported Monday."

We need to step it up a bit.

Avoid crowds. This includes going to Lowes, Home Depot, Hobby Lobby, Target, etc. If you need to go, if it is essential, then try to go when there are less people, e.g. early in the morning and not on a weekend.

Stay 6-10 feet away from other people. This means anyone except for those who live in your household even if they are close friends, other family members, church members, etc.

Don't touch your face while out and about. Wash your hands frequently while out and about using wipes, hand sanitizer, alcohol.

Please protect yourselves, your family, your neighbors, the cashiers and workers at stores.
