- If someone who attends an event your group is hosting at the PSF Community Center is a presumptive positive for COVID-19 or is identified as a close contact of someone who is a presumptive positive, we request that you inform the Community Center immediately so that we can take the proper precautions.
The CDC recommends that you engage in the following precautions to aid in preventing the spread of cold, flu, and other illnesses that transmit this time of year:
• If you feel sick, please stay home and rest. This is the best way to avoid spreading any illness and make sure you get the rest you need to recover.
• Please wash your hands often and thoroughly with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands. Use Alcohol-based hand sanitizer when soap and water are not available. (There are sinks in the restrooms on the lower level, 1st floor and 2nd floor. Hand sanitizer stations are also available next to the elevator on the lower level, 1st floor and 2nd floor).
• Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
• Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue. Throw it away immediately and wash your hands.
As part of our standard operations, we employ professional cleaners, and we have increased the frequency of cleanings. In addition, we expanded our cleaning service to include disinfecting surfaces in our common areas and community rooms like doorknobs, handrails, tables and chairs. We ask everyone who uses the Community Center to support our efforts to keep the facility clean to reduce the risk of infection.
All organizations and all persons utilizing the PSF Community Center acknowledge that the use of the Community Center is optional, and all persons fully understand the potential risks of using the Community Center.
We will continue to monitor and follow any updates and recommendations from the CDC and Massachusetts Department of Public Health.
