The City wants all residents to enjoy Labor Day and celebrate responsibly.

Keep yourself and the community safe by avoiding large gatherings and only celebrating with the people you live with. If you choose to venture out this holiday weekend, remember to wear a face covering, keep at least 6 feet away from others, and wash or sanitize your hands after touching any surfaces.
