On-going Precautions

There are measures we can take now to prevent the spread of illness. Please take care of your health and protect others by doing the following:
  • Practice regular and thorough hand washing especially after coughing, sneezing, blowing your nose; after using the washroom or changing diapers; before preparing food or eating.
  • Practice good cough etiquette by coughing into your sleeve or into a tissue.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth as once contaminated, hands can transfer the virus and from there, the virus can enter your body and make you sick.
  • If you are sick, please stay home, including if you are taking medications to mask symptoms (such as fever, coughing or shortness of breath).
