Please follow directions and instructions from the federal, state and local leadership, as well as professionals in disease control. Precautions include frequent hand washing, staying at least 6 feet from others when you are out and avoiding large groups of people.

Please be cautious of information from unfamiliar sources and report any suspicious solicitations to the Red Bay Police Department. Also, please look out for those who may need help. Call or text to check on your elderly neighbors; maybe shop for them or run necessary errands.

WITH A CALM, COMMON SENSE APPROACH TO THIS CHALLENGE, WE WILL SURVIVE THIS! WITH GOD’S HELP, WE ARE RED BAY STRONG!
