Another weekend is upon us. COVID-19 is still present and is spreading at a high rate. The CDC advises people living in areas of high or high transmission – which includes Hardin County – to wear a mask when in indoor public places, regardless of their immunization status. For those who want to go out, we’ve put together a list of five things you could do this weekend. Stay healthy and have a great weekend.
