Lady Minto Hospital Medical Staff Association Message for May 14

0

Dear Salt Springers,

Again, we thank you for your excellent efforts to flatten the COVID-19 curve in weeks past. It is because of your dedication to our community’s health that we can begin to relax a few of the restrictions.

At this time, we still need to adhere to some important guidelines to minimize the risk of a secondary outbreak. If we continue on this good path, we will be able to relax things further in June and July. Please: This long weekend, make smart choices. Stay close to home so we can keep our communities safe.

• Stay informed, be prepared and follow public health advice

• Practice good hygiene 

• Frequent hand washing

• Avoid touching face

• Cough into your sleeve

• Disinfect frequently touched surfaces

• Stay at home and away from others if you’re feeling ill

• Don’t go to school or work sick

• Maintain physical distancing outside your household 

• No handshaking or hugging

• Small numbers of contacts

• Keep a safe distance

• Clean your home and workspace more often

• Consider using non-medical masks when physical distancing isn’t possible, such as on transit and while shopping.
