  • Wash your hands when you can. This is the number one way to stop the spread of virus. It works.
  • Avoid large crowds when you can. For higher risk people, this is very important
  • Avoid touching your face as much as possible.
  • Practice social distancing when possible. Do your best to maintain 6 feet of separation from people and stay home when you can.
  • Remove the “handshake” from greetings. A simple wave or other alternative acknowledgement will work for now.
  • Clean and sanitize your homes and work stations regularly.
  • Clean high touch surfaces often.
  • Do not eat out of community containers.
  • Wash your hands before you use office kitchens.
  • Cover your mouth and nose when you sneeze with tissue. Make sure throw your tissue in the trash and re-wash your hands.
  • If you do not have a tissue, cough or sneeze into your elbow.
  • Use hand sanitizer that is at least 60% alcohol if you cant wash your hands.
  • Get a Flu shot!!!!! It will help reduce the risk of flu.
  • STAY HOME IF YOUR SICK!!!!!!!!!! If you need to medical attention, go to your doctor and inform them of your symptoms ahead of time.
  • Finally, Know the Symptoms. Fever (100.4 or greater)  Cough, Shortness of Breath. If you have these symptoms, contact your doctor.

By implementing these best practice habits, we all will help reduce the risk of coming in contact with COVID-19. This will also help with the reduction in contracting other virus’ such as flu. If you have any questions, you can always contact the Health Department  at 978-692-5509 or go to the Health Department Website at: https://westfordma.gov/covid-19 . As we receive new information, we will be sure to share it with all of you so we can make the best recommendations on policy and procedures moving forward.

Prevention is the key!!! By taking personal responsibility for your own safety, you in turn, make others safer.  More information is also posted on dedicated web page at westfordma.gov/covid-19.

Jeffrey P. Stephens R.S, CP-FS
