What to Consider Before Going Out

Local orders – View updates from your local health department to better understand the situation in your community and what local orders are in place in your community. Also find out about school closures, business re-openings, and stay-at-home orders in your state.

Am I at risk? – Older adults and people of any age who have serious underlying medical conditions might be at higher risk for severe illness from COVID-19. While the risk for severe illness is lower for others, everyone faces some risk of illness.

Does the activity require me to share items? – Choose places where there is limited sharing of items and where any items that are shared are thoroughly cleaned and disinfected between uses. You can also choose to visit places that share, post, or announce that they have increased cleaning and disinfection to protect others from COVID-19.

The St. Johns High School Auto Program is pleased to announce we will be hosting a cruise on Saturday, July 18.

The cruise will begin at the high school and travel through Ovid (3:50), Laingsburg (4:05), Bath (4:30), DeWitt (4:45), Eagle (5:10), Westphalia (5:15), Pewamo (5:25), Fowler (5:40) and return to St Johns.

Participants will line up at 3:00 p.m. in the St. Johns High School Parking Lot, or you may join in along the route.
The Cruise will roll out at 3:30 sharp. The tour will travel approximately 90 miles in two and one half hours. The only cost is your time and fuel

Local law enforcement will be patrolling our route – Drive slowly, Quietly, Safely!
