It is our sincere hope that all individuals in our community, remain healthy as we work through this difficult time. The following is a list of things that you can do to stay well:Avoid close contact with people who are sick.

  1. Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth.
  2. Stay home when you are sick (You can reschedule your appointments with your case manager, psychiatrist or other TBHS provider).
  3. Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
  4. If you don’t have a tissue, cough or sneeze into the inside corner of your elbow.
  5. Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe.
  6. Avoid shaking hands during greetings. Fist bump or elbow bump instead.
  7. WASHING YOUR HANDS OFTEN (or using hand sanitizer) is the best way to prevent the spread of infection.
  8. As will all illnesses people who are pregnant or have a weaker immune system, chronic illnesses and individuals over 60 years and older are also at higher risk of infection and developing complications from infection.
