Let's stay on a roll, WA.

Thank you for doing your part during the pandemic. During the cooler months, let’s keep it up by doing 3 simple things: wearing a mask when necessary, staying up to date with vaccines and continuing to wash our hands regularly.

Let’s stay on a roll through winter so we can do the things we love with the people we love.

Masks

Masks are an effective way to help stop the spread from you to others, and from others to you. It’s just another simple way of staying healthy through the cooler months.
