The holiday season is just around the corner, and there are plenty of opportunities to celebrate safely with socially distant holiday fun around Fishers.
The Fishers Health Department encourages residents to enjoy indoor gatherings and holiday meals with only those in their household, and to practice social distancing, wear masks, and sanitize regularly to slow the spread of COVID-19 in our community.
