Coronavirus (COVID-19)

To View Links to Information – Taken From DSHA President Newsletter of March 2, 2020

Coronavirus DSHA wants to ensure that all members have access to clear and accurate information regarding the Coronavirus strain: (COVID-19). Please look to these resources for recommendations and updates:

World Health Organization
Centers for Disease Control and Prevention
Delaware Department of Public Health
University of Delaware

DSHA also recommends discussing risk and salient precautions with your employer. Per the CDC, prevention measures include: Avoid close contact with people who are sick. Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth. Stay home when you are sick. Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash. Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe.  CDC does not recommend that people who are well wear a facemask to protect themselves from respiratory diseases, including COVID-19. Facemasks should be used by people who show symptoms of COVID-19 to help prevent the spread of the disease to others. The use of facemasks is also crucial for health workers and people who are taking care of someone in close settings (at home or in a health care facility). Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing. If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol. Always wash hands with soap and water if hands are visibly dirty.
