Coronovirus Update
Updated On: Mar 13, 2020
Dear Staff: Like so many of you, we continue to receive and review daily updates about the coronavirus (COVID-19) and how it is impacting our world. For us, that means understanding how it affects our employees and communities, and then making the necessary adjustments to our work and operations. As of yesterday, the World Health Organization declared New Coronavirus a Pandemic. This can be defined as a disease that has become widespread around the world. US cases top 1,300 and California continues to experience an increase in cases, now reaching 200 and 4 related deaths. Closer to home, Stanislaus County has reported two confirmed cases. As the virus continues to spread, we have one simple objective that guides us: keeping our employees and community safe. This is at the center of our conversations every step of the way. With that in mind, the City is taking several actions in response to the threat of the coronavirus. • Daily, if not hourly, review of related media and local County health guidelines • Implementation of sanitation and hygiene measures. o Deployed additional hand sanitizer stations and health promotion posters throughout TSP • Monitoring any impacts to City services and infrastructure o According to the Utilities Department the coronavirus has no impact on the quality or supply of your tap water. As always, your tap water is available, plentiful and safe. The City does not expect this health outbreak to disrupt water service to our customers. • Provide weekly updates through established Threat Assessment Group meetings covering any necessary safety measures until this pandemic diminishes • In addition, we are recommending all departments implement the following: o Supply additional hand sanitizer, disinfectant wipes, and tissues in and around work areas, front counters, restrooms, breakrooms, and public access areas. o Supply personal hand sanitizers for field crews who may have limited access to hand wash facilities. o Post the attached health promotion posters in the following areas: lobbies, common areas, bulletin boards and video display monitors (e.g. MediaStar). For those employees living outside of Stanislaus County, monitor your local public health agencies who may recommend additional community actions to reduce potential exposure to COVID-19, especially if COVID-19 is spreading in your community. Every person has a role to play. At this time, the best way to protect your health is to practice good health habits like washing your hands regularly, covering your cough and staying home if you are ill. Also, if you have a fever and respiratory symptoms or other signs of COVID-19, call your health care provider or local public health department first before seeking medical care. Encourage others to practice extra good hygiene habits. Remember, a fist, elbow, or foot bump is a suggested substitute for a handshake. It is important for all of us to be informed and communicate any suggestions or concerns to the Safety, HR, or Leadership team. Thank you, Michaux
