COVID-19 Building Department Policy
There is currently no vaccine to prevent Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19). The best way to prevent illness is to avoid being exposed to this virus. Below are ways to help protect yourself:
Avoid touching your face, which includes your eyes, nose, and mouth.
Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom, before eating, and after blowing your nose, coughing or sneezing. If you don’t have soap and water, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol. Cover all surfaces of your hands and rub them together until they feel dry.
Social distancing measures are taken to restrict when and where people can gather to stop or slow the spread of infection diseases. Social distancing measures include limiting large groups of people coming together (no groups larger than ten), closing buildings, and canceling events. Also, try and keep at least six feet between you and other people.
Do not shake hands, here are some other ways of social greeting.
- Just say “hello”
- Give a nod
Avoid close contact with people who are sick and stay home when you’re sick except to get medical care.
Clean and Disinfect
- Clean AND disinfect frequently touched surfaces daily. This includes tables, doorknobs, light switches, countertops, handles, desks, phones, keyboards, toilets, faucets, and sinks.
- If surfaces are dirty, clean them: Use detergent or soap and water prior to disinfection.
The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has set up a resource for individuals to distinguish between rumors and facts regarding COVID-19.
