The wellness of our community is extremely important to us here at the Bluebird District. We want you to know that we’re monitoring all recommendations and updates from government officials surrounding the novel coronavirus, or COVID-19. The first priority for everyone is to take appropriate steps to limit the spread of COVID-19 and ensure our entire community remains healthy.
HOW TO SUPPORT BLUEBIRD BUSINESSES
During this time of changes in events, work schedules, and travel, we encourage you to remember our many small, independent businesses throughout our community and to continue supporting them even if you can’t visit them physically. As always, follow guidance from public health officials regarding social distancing and proper health etiquette if and when visiting businesses and public spaces.
