PROTECT YOURSELF AND YOUR FAMILY

Be attentive to the most recent information on the outbreak, available via the CDC's COVID-19 page and the World Health Organization's COVID-19 site.

We request you not to go to work if you are ill or are symptomatic, and seek medical care as soon as possible if your symptoms do not improve. Take care of your health and protect others by doing the following:

  • Regularly and thoroughly clean your hands with an alcohol-based hand sanitizer or wash them with soap and water. Washing your hands with soap and water or using alcohol-based hand sanitizer kills viruses that may be on your hands.

  • Avoid individuals who are ill, particularly if they are coughing or sneezing.

  • Cover your mouth and nose with your arm or tissue when you cough or sneeze. Properly dispose of any used tissues immediately.

  • Stay home if you feel unwell. If you have a fever, cough or difficulty breathing, seek medical attention.  

Additional protection measures are suggested for those who are in or who have recently visited (defined as within the last 14 days) areas where COVID-19 is present. You are asked to:

  • Stay at home and self-isolate if you begin to feel unwell, even with mild symptoms such as headache and slight runny nose, until you recover.

  • If you develop fever, cough or difficulty breathing, seek medical advice promptly as this may be due to a respiratory infection or other serious condition. Call in advance and tell your provider of any recent travel or contact with travelers.
