As we navigate
through this challenging time, the health and well-being of each of our
residents and onsite associates remains our top priority. We are requesting
your help protecting the health and well-being of each of you, your families
and our onsite associates. We strongly encourage you to implement the steps
below (to the extent that you have not already done so) to minimize the spread
of the COVID-19 virus (Coronavirus).
STEPS WE CAN ALL TAKE TO MINIMIZE THE SPREAD OF THE VIRUS:
- Avoid “in person” interaction with other residents.
- Limit the time you spend in common areas of our community (for example, hallways and elevators). When you are in common areas, always stay at least 6 feet away from others.
- Limit the frequency and time of your trips to public places (for example, grocery stores, pharmacies, post offices and gas stations) to that which is absolutely necessary.
- Avoid having visitors come to your residence or our community other than care providers essential to your health and well-being.
- Wait for the next elevator if the one you’ve called is occupied. It’s only a few extra minutes and will be worth it for your health!
OTHER KEY CDC SAFETY REMINDERS:
- Put distance between yourself and other people. Stay at least 6 feet away from others.
- Stay home if you are sick.
- Wash hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds (especially after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing; going to the bathroom; and before eating or preparing food. If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol, covering all surfaces of your hands and rubbing them together until they feel dry).
- Cover coughs and sneezes with tissue and then put the tissue in the trash. If you don’t have a tissue, cough or sneeze into your upper sleeve, not your hands.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.
- If you are feeling sick, the CDC is recommending that you call your doctor prior to going in person.
