Covid-19

In regards to the recent developments with Covid-19 we are currently monitoring the situation. Below is a list of helpful resources for you and your family.

Health and Safety

We want to ensure the health and safety of our own employees, as well as others in the general public. 

Per the CDC, “the best way to prevent infection is to avoid being exposed to this virus. However, as a reminder, CDC always recommends everyday preventative actions to help prevent the spread of viruses, including:

• 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, but wash your hands whenever possible.
• Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth as much as possible.
• Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash. If there are no tissues, then cough into your elbow to avoid spreading germs via your hands.
 
Guidance on self-quarantine should be sought from your line manager, as situations vary.
