Show Your LOVE for Your Community!!

Vaccination is no longer required for entrance to the building but highly encouraged:  The evidence is clear – vaccines save lives. If you are not vaccinated yet, NOW is the time. The vaccine is now fully FDA approved, and has been verified to be SAFE and VERY effective.

Masks are No Longer Required:  But we ask that you please wear masks over your nose and mouth while in the building, whether you are vaccinated or not, in order to respect others’ concerns regarding safety. Even though the vaccine radically reduces the possibility of death and hospitalization, the virus can still be carried in the nose and throat of vaccinated people, and transmitted to people who are susceptible. We will continue to provide masks and sanitizer by the entrances.
