Urging all residents and visitors to protect themselves as recommended by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC):

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick. For added precaution, keep a safe distance from those who have no apparent symptoms.
  • Stay home when you are ill, even if symptoms are mild.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.

Additionally, the city strongly encourages residents to adjust their personal social etiquette practices accordingly:

  • No handshaking. Eliminate this traditional courtesy, as it requires close contact.
  • Opt for video meetings or conference calls; take steps now to reduce the need for in-person meetings until further notice.
  • Don’t pass mobile phones, laptops or other personal belongings to others. Everyone should have their hands only on their own belongings.
  • Make hand sanitizer visibly available.
