Community Tips

Over the next two weeks, we expect to see an increase in community spread of COVID-19. Help slow the spread by limiting trips outside of your homes – beyond what is necessary to take care of essentials. If you do need to go out, remember to wear a mask, maintain a physical distance of at least 6 feet, and wash your hands.

While we encourage you to remain calm, the necessity of following these measures is incredibly important. Our community will benefit from your decision to take precautions. We care about every resident on Cape Cod. By taking care of yourself, you are also caring for every resident on Cape Cod.
