State and Local Guidance:
Following the recommended precautions from the state and local levels in regard to COVID-19 at gatherings and community events, many Galena businesses have been required to adjust their hours and service options. In addition, many spring happenings have been canceled or postponed. These actions have been taken to protect the health of the visitors and the local community.
As health officials learn more about the COVID-19 virus, the overall consensus is to be aware, be prepared, stay informed and practice healthy habits and preventable actions, including social distancing.
