As a reminder, if you’re sick, call your healthcare provider. Call your doctor’s office or hospital FIRST before driving there. If you call 9-1-1 for a true emergency, please cover your face to protect yourself and our first responders. Follow CDC guidelines and stay home as much as possible:

Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth.

Avoid handshakes. 

Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.

If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol.

Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.

Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash. If you do not have a tissue, use your sleeve (not your hand).

Get a flu shot to prevent the flu if you have not done so this season. 

Wear a cloth mask at grocery stores and where other social distancing measures are difficult to maintain.

There will be short updates if there is news over the weekend and otherwise a full report on Monday. Have a happy and safe weekend,

 

Mayor Matthew T. Murello
