Please take note of the following health precautions as it pertains to the COVID-19 virus

    The virus is thought to spread mainly from person to person (withing about 6 feet) Via respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs and sneezes. These droplets can land in the mouths or noses of people who are nearby or possibly be inhaled into the lungs.

 

    PREVENTATIVE ACTION: The prevention of the COVID-19 closely resembles that of the flu.  Take care of your health and protect others by doing the following:
      Stay home if you are sick. 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 Avoid close contact with anyone who is coughing or sneezing. Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then immediately throw the tissue away. Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces with disinfectant sprays or wipes.

 

    SYMPTOMS:  Patients with COVID-19 have reportedly had mild to severe respiratory illness. Symptoms can include:
    Fever
    Cough
    Shortness of breath and difficulty breathing

 

 

The  CDC believes that symptoms of COVID-19 may appear in as few as 2 days or as long as 14 days after exposure. If you are experiencing the symptoms listed above, stay home and contact your healthcare provider.  Do not return to work until you are free of all symptoms for 24 hours, without Tylenol or Advil. We do have the right to send home any employee who demonstrations the symptoms listed above.
