Resident Communication March 6, 2020
Dear Resident,
 
If you follow the news, you already know the global Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) is a major concern at this time. This virus has spread worldwide with cases now on every continent except Antarctica. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) announced last week that the virus is expected to have a larger impact in the United States than it has to date.
 
On top of the coronavirus, the seasonal flu is also present in many areas at this time. Basic measures remain the best defense against coronavirus, flu and other communicable diseases.

The CDC has published the following about the basic prevention measures for this virus: LINK.

Per the CDC, “the best way to prevent infection is to avoid being exposed to this virus. However, as a reminder, CDC always recommends everyday preventive actions to help prevent the spread of respiratory viruses, including:
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Stay home when you are sick.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.
These everyday habits can help prevent the spreads of many viruses and other communicable diseases.
It is also important to keep yourself informed as new information is released, and to follow the advice given by our health organizations regarding prevention measures, school closures, etc.
