COVID-19 Info for Community Organizations
We are tracking COVID-19 carefully and working to protect the health of our community. Now is the time for organizations to be prepared and proactive, as well encouraging staff, volunteers and others to follow good illness prevention measures.
Community organizations include groups that may work with vulnerable populations or people with limited access to medical care. It is important that these organizations emphasize standard illness prevention strategies, including providing accessible handwashing stations and/or hand sanitizer (at least 60% alcohol), having sick employees or volunteers stay home, and performing routine cleaning, especially of frequently touched surfaces and objects. It is also important for these organizations to provide accurate information on illness prevention to the community.
This page provides resources and materials for community organizations related to COVID-19. Please use these materials and continue to turn to reliable sources of information.
