We WILL get through the COVID-19 Pandemic together.

A few thoughts, notes and reminders for all of us during these trying times.

There are many unknowns that we all face every day as this COVID-19 pandemic continues to evolve. We may not be able to be with each other in-person during this time of social distancing, but, if COVID-19 has taught us anything, its that we need each other!

The well-being of our employees and our customers is paramount.

We understand that you are relying on us & we are committed to making every effort to minimize disruption to the best of our ability. Stay calm, wash your hands, keep a safe distance from one-another, and above all, please remember we are all in this together.

Tips from the World Health Organization.

Maintain social distancing.

Maintain at least 6 feet (2 meters) distance between yourself and anyone who is coughing or sneezing.

Why?

When someone coughs or sneezes, they spray small liquid droplets from their nose or mouth, which may contain the virus. If you are too close, you can breathe in the droplets, which can include the COVID-19 virus if the person coughing has the disease.

Wash your hands frequently.

Regularly & thoroughly wash your hands with soap & water for a minimum of 20 seconds and/or clean them with an alcohol-based hand cleaner.

Why?

Washing your hands with soap and water or using alcohol-based hand rub kills viruses that may be on your hands.

Practice respiratory hygiene.

Make sure you, and the people around you, follow good respiratory hygiene. This means covering your mouth and nose with your bent elbow or tissue when you cough or sneeze. Then dispose of the used tissue immediately.

Why?

Droplets spread the virus. By following good respiratory hygiene, you protect the people around you from viruses such as cold, flu and COVID-19.

If you have fever, cough and difficulty breathing, seek medical care early.

Stay home if you feel unwell. If you have a fever, cough and difficulty breathing, seek medical attention and call in advance. Follow the directions of your local health authority.

Why?

National and local authorities will have the most up to date information on the situation in your area. Calling in advance will allow your health care provider to quickly direct you to the right health facility. This will also protect you and help prevent the spread of viruses and other infections.

Avoid touching eyes, nose and mouth.

Hands touch many surfaces and can pick up viruses. Once contaminated, hands can transfer the virus to your eyes, nose or mouth. From there, the virus can enter your body and can make you sick.

Stay informed & follow the advice given by your healthcare provider.

National and local authorities will have the most up to date information on whether COVID-19 is spreading in your area. They are best placed to advise on what people in your area should be doing to protect themselves.
