How to Protect Yourself

To assure the safety for staff and clients, we continue to ask that all staff follow the guidelines noted below:

  1.  Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom, before eating, and after blowing your nose, coughing or sneezing. If you only have cold water, wash more vigorously and for a longer period of time.
  2.  Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
  3.  Clean frequently touched surfaces and objects.
  4.  Practice social distancing by keeping 6 feet apart from individuals.

If You Think you are Sick

Any staff feeling sick, caring for someone feeling sick or who have childcare needs given school closures should immediately contact their supervisor for direction.
