A message from our CEO, Barbara Bennett
As things change, we will adjust our policies and practices to respond appropriately to new developments. At the same time, we intend keep you informed about best infection-control practices and what you need to know to keep yourself and your loved ones safe.
How can you limit your exposure to the virus?
The best way to prevent coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) is to avoid being exposed to the virus, which at this time is thought to spread mainly person-to-person. How do you do that?
- Wash your hands with soap and water – frequently and for at least 20 seconds each time
- If soap and water are not available, use hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol
- Avoid touching your face
- Maintain “social distancing” between others (about six feet apart)
- Avoid contact with people who are sick
- Cover your mouth and nose if you cough or sneeze (and immediately wash or sanitize your hands)
What should you do if you’re sick?
- Stay home except to get medical care – avoid public areas, transportation, events, etc.
- If you’re around or caring for others, wear a facemask (N95)
- Cover coughs and sneezes, wash/sanitize hands, and clean and disinfect all high-touch surfaces daily
- Monitor symptoms – seek prompt medical care if symptoms worsen
- Call your doctor before seeking care, including for appointments scheduled for other reasons
- Call 911 if you have a medical emergency
Rest assured that we at Pavillon are taking this outbreak seriously. We will continue evaluating developments and taking appropriate actions to reduce exposure and keep you up-to-date.
