Everyone can play a roll in stopping the spread of the Coronavirus by:
Social distancing is a public health practice that aims to prevent sick people from coming in close contact with healthy people in order to reduce opportunities for disease transmission. It can include large-scale measures like canceling group events or closing public spaces, as well as individual decisions such as avoiding crowds.
With COVID-19, the goal of social distancing right now is to slow down the outbreak in order to reduce the chance of infection among high-risk populations and to reduce the burden on health care systems and workers. Experts describe this as "flattening the curve," which generally refers to the potential success of social distancing measures to prevent surges in illness that could overwhelm health care systems.
While it is believed that the COVID-19 disease may have little impact on a significant portion of the population, it is extremely dangerous for high-risk populations such as the elderly with other underlying health conditions.
In addition to local and national media outlets be sure to follow the City’s social media pages for real-time updates and register for the City’s Emergency Notification System, CodeRED.
