The CDC and the WHO recommend several basic measures to help prevent the spread of Covid-19:

  • Wash your hands often for at least 20 seconds.

  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.

  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects.

  • Stay home when you are sick.

  • Contact a health worker if you have symptoms; fever and a dry cough are most common.

  • DON’T touch your face.

  • DON’T travel if you have a fever and cough.

  • DON’T wear a face mask if you are well.

How will Coronavirus impact the coming election?

Most importantly, don't panic.  The measures being taken are precautionary to help ensure we limit or eliminate the potential spread of the Coronavirus.  These are temporary provisions to ensure long term health and safety for all.

Thank you!
