Here is some important information from the Center for Disease Control (CDC) about Covid-19 (Coronavirus) and what we can do within our own households. Because the CDC believes that seniors may be at a higher risk, follow these practical tips:
– If you are not feeling well (and you are a volunteer or a member) scheduled for an activity, please call the office immediately at 202-.615-5853 so that we can reschedule.
– Cover your coughs and sneezes with a tissue.
– 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 soap and water are not readily available, use a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol. (If you are a volunteer meeting with a member, please wash your hands immediately before or upon meeting the member)
