CLARENDON – Courtney Campbell wore a dinosaur costume on Friday on Route 31A, sending a message that “Extinction Sucks #STAYHOME.”

Campbell wanted to encourage people to stay home as much as possible. If they must go out, practice social distancing, staying at least 6 feet apart from other people. Following those guidelines can help stop the spread of the coronavirus.

“Non-compliance may prolong the spread of COVID-19 as well as increasing the spread which can overwhelm our healthcare systems,” the Orleans and Genesee County Health Departments said on Friday.

The Health Departments recommended people stick to the basics, limit exposure to the public, wash hands frequently, stay home if ill with any respiratory illness, and keep at least 6 feet from other people.
