We can all do our part to prevent the spread of illness in our community. You can help us by following the Centers for Disease Control’s prevention recommendations:

  • Know the symptoms: Symptoms may appear 2-14 days after exposure and include fever, cough, and shortness of breath.
  • Stay home when you OR your child is sick or exhibiting early symptoms of illness.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then dispose of the tissue in the trash.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces like door knobs and handles using a household disinfectant on a regular basis.
  • When at the Y, please use the provided sanitizing wipes to wipe down all equipment including mats and weights and machines after use.
  • Wash your hands frequently with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially before eating; after going to the bathroom or changing a diaper; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
  • If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer containing at least 60% alcohol. Always wash hands with soap and water if hands are visibly dirty.
  • Be prepared and informed on the Novel Coronavirus by obtaining regular updates at cdc.gov and who.int.
