Employee Update – March 16, 2020
Information regarding COVID-19 (Coronavirus Disease)
As part of a press conference held this afternoon by Governor Wolf, the Wolf Administration has requested shutdowns of nonessential businesses statewide expanding an earlier shutdown of 5 counties. We felt it beneficial to clearly list the Wolf Administration’s most current listing of nonessential businesses: community and recreation centers; gyms, including yoga, barre and spin facilities; hair salons, nail salons and spas; casinos; concert venues; theaters; bars; sporting event venues and golf courses; retail facilities, including shopping malls, except for pharmacies or other health care facilities within retail operations.
At this time we do not fall within the guidelines of nonessential business and we will continue normal operation.
As you are aware, we do some work within the food service industry. If you are sick and/or not feeling well, please contact management and stay at home.
We will continue to monitor closely and provide updates as available.
IMPORTANT STEPS TO PROTECT YOURSELF AND THOSE AROUND YOU (AS OUTLINED BY THE CDC):
Clean your hands often
- Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds especially after you have been in a public place, or after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
- If soap and water are not readily available, use a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol. Cover all surfaces of your hands and rub them together until they feel dry.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
Avoid close contact
- Avoid close contact with people who are sick
- Put distance between yourself and other people if COVID-19 is spreading in your community. This is especially important for people who are at higher risk of getting very sick.
Stay home if you’re sick!!
- Stay home if you are sick, except to get medical care. Learn what to do if you are sick.
Cover coughs and sneezes
- Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when you cough or sneeze or use the inside of your elbow.
- Throw used tissues in the trash.
- Immediately wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not readily available, clean your hands with a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol.
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.
