We want you to stay safe right now until this whole thing passes and to do that, here are some tips from the CDC on how to keep your home, work/business, and schools safe right now.

 

HOME

Everyone in your house should wash their hands when they get home and regularly before eating or making a drink. Also, avoid touching your face and make sure to cover coughs and sneezes.  It's a good idea to disinfect surfaces like tables and doorknobs regularly.  And even though it's going to be hot in Orlando this weekend and the pollen levels are ridiculous, you can increase ventilation in your house by opening windows.

If you have anyone with compromised immune systems in the home, have everyone keep as much distance as possible, wash their hands frequently, and try to have just one family member take care of them.

 

WORK AND BUSINESSES

If someone's feeling sick or has a sick family member at home, stay home!

Stop handshakes, clean your hands regularly, disinfect surfaces, and increase ventilation.  Plus, limit food sharing and make sure cafeteria staff practice strict hygiene.

Use video chat for meetings when possible and hold in-person meetings in open, well-ventilated spaces. They suggest  you adjust or postpone large meetings or gatherings and reassess the risks of business travel.

You should curb events that attract a lot of people and try to limit handling cash by encouraging people to pay by inserting a credit card.

 

SCHOOLS

If someone's feeling sick or has a sick family member at home, they should stay home.

Adjust or cancel events or gatherings where people in different classes or grades get together  and if possible, hold classes outside or in open, well-ventilated spaces.  Limit food sharing and make sure cafeteria staff practice strict hygiene.
