COVID-19 MITIGATION STEPS

 

Older adults and people who have severe underlying chronic medical conditions like heart or lung disease or diabetes seem to be at higher risk for developing more serious complications from COVID-19 illness.   Take all steps to protect people in this high-risk group.

 

Know How it Spreads

  • There is currently no vaccine to prevent coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19).

  • The best way to prevent illness is to avoid being exposed to this virus.

    • We are screening all Students and Tutors to ensure we ensure no personal contact is made with anyone that has exhibited symptoms that could be caused by COVID-19, have been in contact with anyone exhibiting symptoms, or have been in proximity in the last 14 days of an area where community transmission occurred.

  • The virus is thought to spread mainly from person-to-person.

    • Between people who have the virus and are in close contact with one another (within about 6 feet).

    • Through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes.

    • We are following the CDC guidelines of ensuring all session contain less than 10 people.

  • These droplets can land in the mouths or noses of people who are nearby or possibly be inhaled into the lungs.

 

Take Steps to Protect Yourself / Precautionary Actions we Take

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds especially after you have been in a public place, or after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.

  • If soap and water are not readily available, use a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol. Cover all surfaces of your hands and rub them together until they feel dry.

  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.

  • Continue to monitor Students and Tutors to minimize any risk of transmission.

  • We will verify the tutor and everyone in the household  has been feeling well for the last 14 days and has not been in contact with anyone feeling unwell.

  • We will tutor in open well ventilated areas that are sanitized before and after the tutoring session.

  • We will maintain social distancing during the session or wear a mask if 6 feet of separation cannot be maintained.

  • We are currently tutoring most sessions remotely via Zoom, but may tutor in person if the above protective steps / actions are in place.
