How should I protect myself against COVID-19?

 

It is very important to practice good hand hygiene. Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom, eating, and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing. If soap and water are not readily available, the CDC recommends the use of alcohol-based hand sanitizer with greater than 60% ethanol or 70% isopropanol. Always avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth. Make sure to clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe. Review the CDC Household Checklist to confirm you have necessary preparations in place.

In social settings, maintain social distancing of six feet from others as much as possible. Avoid close contact with other people to protect against exposure.

Furthermore, do not go anywhere when you feel ill. Instead, stay home and rest. Lastly, avoid traveling to places with widespread or sustained community transmission of COVID-19.

Frequently Asked Questions

When should I wear my cloth face covering?

Residents should wear their masks anytime they leave their apartments or anytime visitors are in their apartments. Visitors and associates should wear their masks at all times while on a Judson campus.

What do I do if I am experiencing symptoms associated with COVID-19?

Are there new COVID-19 scams that residents should be aware of?

Scammers are contacting people claiming to be tracing COVID-19 contacts. While legitimate health agencies, including the Cuyahoga County Board of Health and the Cleveland Department of Public Health are calling people to complete contact tracing, they will never ask for your Social Security or Bank Account information.
