From the Department of Health & Human Services – As American businesses begin to open again, it’s important we continue to help slow the spread of COVID-19 and keep members of our communities healthy and safe. Wearing a cloth face covering, practicing social distancing, and washing your hands are good practices that will continue to protect us and our neighbors as our economy reopens. This is not meant for individual households but for state, tribal and local governments, and specific sector entities (transportation is one of them).
