The best way to stay healthy and protect ourselves and others is to follow the recommended steps to prevent the spread of illness:
- Stay home when you are sick. Stay home for at least 24 hours after you no longer have a fever or symptoms of a fever without the use of fever-reducing medicines.
- Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available, use alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol.
- Cover your coughs and sneezes with a tissue, and then dispose of the tissue and clean your hands immediately. If you do not have a tissue, use your sleeve (not your hands).
- Limit close contact with people who are sick.
- Clean and disinfect frequently-touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipes.
Physical distancing and mask wearing is key to slowing the spread of this disease. Social distancing means staying out of crowded places, avoiding group gatherings, and maintaining distance (approximately 6 feet, or 2 meters) from others when possible.
It is important for all members of the Otis Community to stay informed of the latest developments regarding COVID-19 and be aware of the steps we are taking and that each of you can take to keep our community healthy and safe.
