Community Council and Staff has worked within The Public Guidance and with modifications put in place; together we are able to reopen as our new normal way we have become familiar with, while we continue to work together to fight the virus that causes COVID-19.
Operational Plans for both the Community Complex and the Eco-Centre are in place. Signage is posted for all to follow while entering and visiting both locations. Guidance we have all become familiar with – Physical Distancing, good hand hygiene, staying home when ill. Enhanced cleaning and disinfection of commonly touched surfaces, and more – will remain in place through this and each phase of the plan.
Preventing the Spread of COVID-19
To protect yourself and others from coronavirus (COVID-19) it’s important to think about how the virus is spread. Coronavirus is spread through sneeze or cough droplets. To infect you, it has to get from an infected person’s nose or mouth into your eyes, nose or mouth. This can be direct or indirect (on hands, objects, surfaces). Keep this in mind. It will help you remember all the things you need to do to protect yourself and others from the virus.
Keep a space of 6.5 feet between you and others. Reduce interactions with people outside the workplace and home. Avoid crowded places. Do Not shake hands or make close contact, if possible.
Protect Yourself and Others
Wash your hands properly and often.
Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or your sleeve when you cough or sneeze.
Throw used tissue in waste bin and rewash your hands properly.
Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.
Stay at home if you are sick to help stop the spread of whatever infection you have.
Do Not touch your eyes, nose or mouth if your hands are not clean.
