Out of an abundance of caution, the Tribal Administration campus will be closed to employees and visitors on Wednesday, March 11, 2020. Several employees may have potentially been exposed to the COVID-19 corona virus and this closure will be used to conduct a sanitized cleaning process of administrative buildings.
As a reminder, here are some bullets from King County Public Health regarding what they are recommending:
- Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
- Avoid crowds and other congregate settings.
- Try to avoid being in large groups of people, especially in poorly ventilated spaces.
- Clean your hands often.
- 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 a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol.
- Make sure you have access to several weeks of medications and supplies. Create a household plan of action (see CDC’s home plan checklist).
- Clean and disinfect your home to remove germs.
- Practice routine cleaning of frequently touched surfaces (for example: tables, doorknobs, light switches, handles, desks, toilets, faucets, sinks) with household cleaners and EPA-registered disinfectants that are appropriate for the surface, following label instructions.
- Pay attention for potential symptoms.
- COVID-19 symptoms can include fever, cough, and shortness of breath.
People at high risk for complications from COVID-19 are:
- People older than 60 years
- People with chronic medical conditions, such as heart disease, lung disease and diabetes
- People with weakened immune systems
- Pregnant people
