Coronavirus Prevention and Preparedness

We take the health and well-being of everyone who uses the PSF Community Center incredibly seriously.

In keeping with the Mandatory Workplace Safety Standards developed by the Massachusetts Department of Public Health, the COVID-19 Command Center and Reopening Advisory Board, until further notice, all individuals inside the PSF Community Center should:

  • wear face coverings or masks; and
  • remain at least six feet apart to the greatest extent possible.

Any individual showing symptoms of fever or respiratory illness should not enter the Community Center.  If you have had a fever, please do not enter the Community Center until you are free of symptoms for at least 24 hours without the use of fever reducing medicines or other symptom altering medicine (ie cough suppressant).

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. 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 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, however 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.

We will continue to monitor and follow any updates and recommendations from the CDC and Massachusetts Department of Public Health.
