A few things of note as you return. Most importantly, drive safe and take your time getting back. Stagger your re-entry if possible.

County residents should check utilities on arrival to ensure everything is operational. If you have utility concerns, please contact your service provider as soon as possible.
Services such as grocery services, pharmacies, and gas stations should re-open as soon as possible, but residents need to be prepared for a reduction in service until staff are in place.
