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. At the conclusion of an event, organizations are required to thoroughly clean and disinfect the surfaces of tables and chairs they have used. Cleaning wipes will be provided.
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).
