Coronavirus (COVID-19) Resources
For those who are visiting our City facilities and interacting with staff, please follow CDC recommendations:
- Stay home if you are sick. Contact your primary care doctor first for direction (as long as you aren’t in immediate health crisis).
- Wash your hands often, with soap and water, for at least 20 seconds (especially after using the bathroom, before eating, and after blowing your nose, coughing or sneezing).
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth — especially after touching commonly used items like handrails, elevator buttons and doorknobs.
- Carry hand sanitizer in your purse or pockets.
- Consider foregoing handshakes and exchanging business cards for the time being.
- Practice coughing and sneezing hygiene: Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue (or your elbow), then throw the tissue in the trash (not in your bag or pocket).
