Prevention

  • Hand Washing – Wash your hands with soap and water for a minimum of 20-30 seconds. If soap and water is unavailable, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol. Cover all surfaces of your hands and rub them together until they feel dry.
  • Avoid Touching Eyes, Nose, and Mouth – Avoid touching your face with unwashed hands.
  • Avoid Coughing into Hands – The CDC recommends sneezing or coughing into a tissue, then throwing the tissue away.
  • Common Area Amenities – High traffic areas in the building like the fitness center (and equipment) or work-from-home areas should be thoroughly sanitized after each use.
  • Stay Home – If you’re sick, stay home from work unless you’re getting medical care.
  • Avoid Close Contact – If you know someone who is sick, it is best to avoid close contact with them.
  • Animals – Do not handle pets or other animals while sick.
  • Facemask – If you become ill, you should wear a facemask when you are around other people or pets before you enter a healthcare providers office. The CDC does not recommend people who are well wear a facemask to protect themselves from respiratory diseases, including COVID-19.

Who Is Considered High Risk?

Our company is dedicated to doing everything we can to support our clients and caregivers throughout this national emergency. We also understand that many of our clients and caregivers may be at higher risk of getting sick from this illness. Early information from China shows that older adults and people who have serious chronic medical conditions should be considered the most vulnerable.

  • Fever

If you develop symptoms, and have been in close contact with person known to have COVID-19 or if you have recently traveled from an area with widespread or ongoing community spread of COVID-19, call your health care professional. If you have been notified by public health authorities that you might have been exposed, follow instructions provided by your local health department.
