The Measures We Are Taking to Ensure the Health & Safety of Our Community
There are currently no limits to in-person visits and gatherings. Feel free to meet up as you wish but maintain all other safety measures including frequent hand washing and sanitizing, physical distancing where possible, as well as staying home if you are sick or showing any symptoms of COVID-19.
Proper sanitation is one of the best ways to reduce germs that can lead to illness. At the individual level, the main things to focus on are frequent hand washing with soap and water as well as hand sanitizing. You also want to make sure you are changing masks frequently and never touching the outside of your mask.
Although we aren’t sure how long COVID-19 virus particles can live on various surfaces we need to be careful anyway. Cleaning and disinfecting surfaces in homes, businesses, and public buildings is a crucial line of defense. Frequently touched surfaces should be cleaned daily. For more info check the BC Center for Disease Control Website section on disinfecting surfaces.
