HEALTHY HABITS TO HELP PREVENT THE SPREAD OF CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19):

· Avoid close contact with others in general by maintaining social distancing

· Avoid close contact with people who are sick. If you are sick, keep your distance from others

· Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth – Germs are often spread when a person touches something that is contaminated with germs and then touches his or her eyes, nose, or mouth

· Cover your mouth and nose: Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when coughing or sneezing to prevent those around you from getting sick

· Clean your hands frequently: Washing your hands often for 20 seconds will help protect you from germs. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol based hand sanitizer with at least 60% Ethyl Alcohol

· Practice other good health habits: Use regular cleaning spray or wipe to clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces

COALITION FOR THE HOMELESS – Click to visit their web page

Founded in 1982 and incorporated as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization in 1988, the mission of Coalition for the Homeless is to lead in the development, advocacy and coordination of community strategies to prevent and end homelessness.

During this difficult time, The Coalition is actively working with local jurisdictions, officials, and offices of emergency management to ensure that the care and treatment of people experiencing homelessness is considered as we respond to this crisis. This includes access to resources for our direct service partners that can help limit the spread of disease as well as treat the disease among populations experiencing homelessness.
