To Our Residents:
The coronavirus has spread to all continents except Antarctica, and the former director of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) believes continued spreading for the near term is inevitable. In late February officials from the Center for Disease Control, the National Institutes of Health and other agencies warned the public to prepare for the spread of the coronavirus within the United States.
As we all have, we have been monitoring this for the last several weeks and believe it is appropriate to send general communication to our residents in regards to steps everyone can be taking at our communities. The most important thing to do now is not panic, but rather be prepared. Any resident who exhibits symptoms after reviewing the informational links provided below and/or develop the symptoms outlined below a fever, should self-isolate and contact local health officials.
A brief recap of the new virus, called COVID-19, is transmitted from person to person via droplets when an infected person breathes out, coughs or sneezes.
It can also spread via contaminated surfaces such as door handles or railings.
Coronavirus infections have a wide range of symptoms, including fever, coughing, shortness of breath and breathing difficulties.
Mild cases can cause cold-like symptoms including a sore throat, headache, fever, cough or trouble breathing.
Severe cases can cause pneumonia, severe acute respiratory illness, kidney failure and death.
Symptoms may appear 2-14 days after exposure.
