This October, let’s commit to protecting our family, friends and community by taking the pledge to #flattenthecurve and ask others to do the same. It hasn’t been easy. But we made it this far because we always find the strength to do the right thing.

Take the pledge to #StopTheSpread and encourage others by telling them how you’re doing your part:

  2. SHARE! Tell others how or why you’re stopping the spread of COVID-19, and who you’re doing it for
