      • All customers and visitors who enter the Administrative Building beyond the payment lobby will be screened for temperature checks and health questions.

Thank you for your cooperation.

Reminder: Personal wipes, baby wipes, cleaning wipes, disinfecting wipes and paper towels should never be flushed down the toilet. Even those that are marketed as “flushable”. These items do not break down in the water like toilet paper does, and they can cause clogs and stoppages. If you run out of toilet paper, we suggest facial tissue as an emergency substitute to toilet paper.
