Stay Safe While Supporting Local
- Order online/over the phone when possible. Limit your direct contact and practice social distancing. Let your inner extrovert out! Most businesses are actively responding to messages and taking orders through social media, phone, email, website or delivery services like UberEats and DoorDash.
- Get the to-do list done. Have you been thinking about buying that membership or signing the kids up for a class? Look at all the free time on your hands! Do it now. Book that birthday party in advance, finally sign up for guitar lessons, etc.
- Tip well. Remember the delivery driver when you order your pizza or have your items sent to your home.
Speaking of shopping – check out the list of bars, restaurants, service providers and attractions that are still open.
