The procedures listed are some immediate steps that have been taken to reduce the risk of exposure in public spaces. Please visit the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) website for all practices we would like the citizens of Winona Lake to consider.

It is our goal to keep the public informed and to be able to continue town business as usual while keeping the community safe.
