Stay Healthy: Corona Virus and Flu safety tips
The Mundelein Park & Recreation District continues to monitor developments regarding the spread of the COVID-19 (coronavirus). While the risk of contracting this virus is believed to be low, we approach it as we would a wide spread flu epidemic. Everyone can do their part to help us respond to this emerging public health threat.
- Per the Center for Disease Control, the primary way for you to avoid influenza, COVID-19 and other viruses is hand washing, covering coughs and sneezes, and staying home if you have symptoms and/or a fever.
- Stay home if you are sick – if you have symptoms of acute respiratory illness, it is recommended you stay home and not go to work or to Park District programs until you are free of fever (100.4 F), signs of a fever, and any other symptoms for at least 24 hours, without the use of fever reducing or other symptom-altering medicines (e.g. cough suppressants).
- Use respiratory etiquette and hand hygiene – cover your coughs and sneezes and clean your hands often with an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60-96% alcohol, or wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
- As a matter of standard practice, our custodial staff disinfects bathrooms, cleans classrooms, floors, fitness equipment, and frequently touched surfaces daily.
- Hand sanitizer and/or disinfectant wipes are available at all facilities and we encourage guests and staff to use these.
If you would like additional information, the Center for Disease Control and Illinois Department of Public Health websites will have the most up to date information and recommendations.
Thank you for your help in keeping our participants and staff safe and healthy.
