About Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Following the identification and emergence of the coronavirus (COVID-19), we have responded by taking the following steps to protect the safety of our patients, caregivers, team members and the community. As always, patient and team member safety is a top priority.

How are coronavirus germs spread?

Coronavirus germs are thought to be spread by coughing or sneezing, as well as close contact with an infected person. Close contact means being within six feet of an infected person for a period of time. It might also be spread by touching items and surfaces that a sick person has used, such as tissues or linens.

How can I best prevent the coronavirus?

  • Wash your hands often or use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer to protect yourself from germs.
  • Avoid touching your face. Germs are often spread when a person touches something that is contaminated with germs and then touches his or her eyes, nose or mouth.
  • Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when coughing or sneezing. This helps prevent those around you from getting sick. Don’t have a tissue? Cough into the crook of your elbow or upper sleeve to prevent the spread of germs.
  • If you are sick, stay home to help prevent others from getting sick.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick. When you are sick, keep your distance from others to protect them from getting sick too.
  • Take care of yourself, get plenty of sleep, manage your stress, eat healthy, exercise daily and drink plenty of liquids to stay healthy.

 

 

How should I wash my hands?

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 soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60 percent alcohol. Always wash hands with soap and water if hands are visibly dirty.

 

 

 

What can businesses do to help prevent the spread of coronavirus?

The CDC recommends the following strategies for businesses to help prevent the spread of coronavirus:

  • Actively encourage sick employees to stay home.
  • Emphasize staying home when sick, covering your cough and good hand hygiene to all employees.
  • Perform routine environmental cleaning.

Please refer to these CDC resources that provide more information about how to prevent the spread of the coronavirus in your business.
