According to experts, the best way we can protect our front-line workers and slow the spread of this virus is to double down on mask wearing, social distancing, and washing hands frequently.

They say if you are planning to travel or gather with other households for the holidays, we urge you to reconsider.

This is the second time this bipartisan group of governors has joined forces in the past month to encourage people in their region to do their part to protect our families, front-line workers and small businesses.
