• Huron County residents, for their commitment to physically distance themselves from family and loved ones during a time of crisis.
• Huron County businesses, for making the necessary sacrifices, and workplace changes that have provided the community the opportunity to be safe while still having access to all of the essential items and services required during this time.

• Huron County agencies, community groups and individual volunteers for stepping up and providing the additional supports the community needs at this time.
