And spread the word with #CrushCovidRI

Last updated on Monday, Oct 19 2020, 11:26:17 AM

We need to continue our efforts to stop the spread of COVID-19. Any time you’re near people who don’t live with you, wear a mask and keep your distance. As we all work together to help stop the spread of COVID-19, remember that what you do to protect your neighbor also helps to protect you. These days, that’s the ultimate win-win situation. We can do this, Rhode Island.
