DOH Reminder About Health Safety Protocol

July 8, 2020

The Department of Health provided the following information. With the spike in positives, we need to remain vigilant, and practice these healthy habits.

* Wash hands frequently with soap and water for 20 seconds with this protective routine.

* Disinfect mobile devices and keyboards regularly. They’re like a third hand!

* Carry alcohol-based hand sanitizer for situations when soap and water are unavailable

* Shaka instead of handshake

* Avoid touching eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands or after touching surfaces

* Cover cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw away. If you don’t have a tissue, cough or sneeze into a bent elbow

* Cloth face coverings are important to wear in public, and should be used with physical distancing to slow the spread of the virus. There are exceptions for young children or anyone who has trouble breathing

* Stay home when you feel sick

* Clean frequently-touched surfaces, such as doorknobs, faucets and lightswitches, with disinfectants

* Vaccinate against the flu

* Maintain a distance of 6+ ft , or two-arms’ length, from others to prevent germs from spreading

* Avoid sharing drinks, food utensils and e-cigarettes with others

* Use a tissue or elbow to touch doorknobs, handrails, elevator buttons and crosswalk buttons. Learn more
