Coronavirus – COVID19

A few basic rules apply to everyone, including staff and customers, regardless of activity.

  • Wash hands regularly and thoroughly with soap and water, for at least 20 seconds, or use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer (unless working with compressed gas, especially oxygen-enriched gas).
  • Maintain a social distance of at least 6 feet (2 meters), and avoid direct contact with other people.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth.
  • Make sure you and the people around you follow good respiratory hygiene. Cough or sneeze into your elbow or a tissue, and dispose of the tissue right away.
  • The CDC recommends wearing a face covering in public settings where other social distancing measures are difficult to maintain. Defer to local orders with regard to masks/face coverings to ensure compliance.
