In an effort to prevent the spread of infections, especially COVID-19, all staff and visitors are now asked to enter through the main entrance and to fill out a questionnaire. The questionnaire asks you to self-report any symptoms or risks of COVID-19.
The symptoms of COVID-19 are fever, cough, sore throat, diarrhea/vomiting. If you have any of these symptoms, please do not come to work. You should call your doctor.
The risk factors for COVID-19 include having been in contact (within 6 feet) of anyone who has or is suspected to have COVID-19. Another risk is if you have been on a cruise. Lastly, a potential risk is if you have traveled internationally in the past 14 days; if you have traveled internationally, please let us know where so that we can determine whether or not there is any risk.
