COVID-19: Stop the Spread of Germs

Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

stop the spread of germs

As COVID-19 (“Novel Coronavirus”) continues to spread and impact more countries around the globe, we want to remind you of the two most important areas for you to consider to protect yourself, your loved ones, and your community:

Personal Hygiene – COVID-19 is a respiratory virus and the same preventative measures as the flu should be taken:

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
  • Avoid touching eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Cover a cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
  • Avoid shaking hands, and use a barrier such as a tissue when touching public surfaces (e.g., bathroom door handles).
  • If you are not feeling well with cold, flu or other symptoms – contact your primary care provider, and STAY HOME from school or work.

Personal Preparedness – we are already starting to see effects in certain industries where the supply chain of goods, transportation, and travel have been impacted. Now is the time to:

  • Review your household preparedness. We recommend you follow the same suggestions shown here for earthquake preparedness kits.
  • Attempt to obtain several months’ supply of any critical medications.
  • Think about any other critical supply needs, and stock up on them now (please refrain from buying up medical supplies such as N-95 or surgical masks – it’s more important for healthcare workers to continue to have access to them)

The City is diligently monitoring this fluid situation and will provide updates on the dedicated Coronavirus (COVID-19) Brisbane Community Updates page.  Thank you for your careful attention and mindfulness in keeping our community safe.
