Some of you may be returning home from winter locations or opening your summer homes. It’s likely that you’ve traveled on planes, come from out of the country or out of the state which raises your risk of having been exposed to COVID-19. As a result, we respectfully ask you to remain in your home for 14 days after your return, in case you may have been inadvertently exposed to the COVID-19 virus and may be contagious to others.
