STAY SAFE, SANDERS COUNTY!!

Be cautious! To protect yourself and others, please follow the following simple measures:

Social distance. Maintain a 6 foot distance between yourself and others. If you are in a situation where you cannot do so, please wear a non-medical/non-surgical mask. (Social distancing is a strategy to lower the pace and spread of COVID-19 and reduce the acute impact on our health care system).
     This article and animation explain the concept of social distancing. https://hub.jhu.edu/2020/03/13/what-is-social-distancing/

Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe.

Wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. Do this each time you use the restroom, and before you eat.

Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth.

Cover your cough and sneezes with the crook of your elbow or a tissue.

Avoid contact with sick people when possible.

Stay home if you’re sick. If you are having symptoms such as fever, cough or shortness of breath, please CALL your healthcare provider.

The public is highly encouraged to:

–Wash hands or use the hand sanitizer at entry doors upon entering the building;

–Maintain a 6’ distance from others, and follow floor markings that direct “traffic,” and use spots that are marked as standing locations.

–It is recommended that the public wear some type of face mask.
