Addressing COVID-19

Daily routines in the U.S. and around the globe obviously are significantly changed for an unknown period of time. I know you have heard this advice many times, but it bears repeating. The best way to stop the spread of COVID-19 – and protect our colleagues and communities – is to follow these simple hygiene tips:
• Wash your hands often, especially before eating, after using the restroom, and after sneezing or coughing;
• Practice social distancing by avoiding large crowds and maintaining six feet of separation from others;
• Do not touch your face with unwashed hands;
• Stay home if you feel sick;
• Cover your coughs and sneezes; and
• Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.

Also useful, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidance for workplaces can be found here:

The better we adhere to these guidelines, the sooner we can return to a sense of normalcy. We wish you, your loved ones, and colleagues the best. Stay safe!
