Personal Preventative Measures
It is very important that residents be educated and proactive in measures that can slow the spread of COVID-19 in our community. Research shows that this virus is less severe for the general population; however, preventive measures taken by all can help protect the most vulnerable members of our community, including older adults and those with serious chronic medical conditions like heart disease, diabetes, or respiratory issues. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) recommends the following as preventative measures that everyone should take to help slow the spread of the virus:
- Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds or with alcohol-based hand sanitizer (at least 60% alcohol)
- Avoid close contact with anyone who is experiencing flu-like symptoms
- Cover your mouth when coughing or sneezing
- Avoid touching your mouth, nose, and eyes
- If you are experiencing symptoms, stay home
- We recommend and encourage residents to practice social distancing to reduce the potential spreading of the virus.
