If your loved one died of COVID-19 and you would like to account for their death, you can add their information to Loved Ones, Not Numbers. You also are invited to send information to The Clayton Crescent.

State, county, and other health experts urge you to wear a mask over your mouth and nose, wash your hands frequently, use hand sanitizer when you’re out, and maintain social distance of at least 6 feet to limit the spread of COVID-19. Because you may not develop symptoms until two weeks after you are exposed to the virus, experts say it’s important to maintain these protocols to starve the disease of any future hosts.
