SOCIAL DISTANCING:

We can slow the spread of COVID-19 by making a conscious effort to keep physical distance between one another. You will have to make changes to your everyday routines in order to minimize close contact with others, including:

  • Avoiding crowds and non-essential gatherings.
    (example: Hanging out at the gas bar, attending social gatherings, etc.)
  • Avoid common greetings, such as handshakes or any physical touch.
  • Limiting contact with people at higher risk
    (eg. Elders, Children, those with limited health such as diabetes, heart/lung problems)
  • No more than 10 people per household.

THINGS TO REMEMBER:

  • Use caution when visiting grocery stores, pharmacies or any essential services.
  • Wash your hands often for at least 20 seconds with soap and water. Use alcohol-based sanitizers if soap and water are not available.
  • Avoid touching your face
  • Avoid common areas, touching surfaces and clothing.

IF YOU HAVE ANY CONCERNS, PLEASE DO THE FOLLOWING:

  • Self isolate yourself from others.
  • Please contact your primary care provider or call 8-1-1
