Dear Clancy Team,
All of us understandably have questions and concerns about the coronavirus relative to our work environment. We want you to know we are striving to maintain an up to date awareness of the situation, though of course not as medical experts but only as members of the general public.
The Centers for Disease Control (“CDC”) has advised that symptoms of the virus may appear up to two weeks after exposure. If you are experiencing symptoms of the virus—which include fever, cough, and shortness of breath—please seek medical attention immediately.
The CDC has offered the following suggestions:
- 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 that contains at least 60% alcohol. The company will provide hand sanitizer in the wash rooms and conference rooms.
- Increase your fluid intake.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
- Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
- Stay home when you are sick.
- Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash and wash your hands. If you do not have a tissue, cover your mouth with the crook of your arm, not your hand. If you do use your hand by accident or reflex to cover your mouth, please make sure to wash your hand immediately.
- Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.
- If you have not received an influenza (Flu) vaccine this year, you should consider getting one as soon as possible.
The company is doing what it can to keep the offices as sanitized as possible. We can all contribute to the spread of germs by wiping down copiers, printers, door handles throughout the day.
I have attached 2 documents provided by the CDC. Please review stop the spread of germs poster and what you need to know about the coronavirus.
