Personal Safety Practices

Individuals are expected to wash their hands for 20 seconds with soap and warm water following CDC guidelines or use hand sanitizer when unable to wash their hands. This is another key element for reducing the spread of infection.

If you are around others and do not have your cloth face covering on, remember to always cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when you cough or sneeze or use the inside of your elbow and do not spit. Throw used tissues in the trash and immediately wash your hands or use hand sanitizer.

Hand sanitizer stations will be clearly marked in high traffic areas.

Hand hygiene will be demonstrated through training, communication and signage.

Sharing of objects is discouraged. If items must be shared, disinfection protocol must be clearly posted and reviewed with all participants.
