Given the current situation regarding the coronavirus (COVID-19) and its impact on public health, Urban Land Conservancy has developed the following guidelines regarding our business operations, with the health and well-being of our staff and other partners in mind.
ULC will be following recommendations and guidance provided by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment.
Until further notice, ULC’s office will remain open. We will, however, be suspending any external meetings and will instead utilize conference calls and other remote options. We will also adhere to social distancing protocols per CDC recommendations.
The following, provided by the CDC, serve as sound reminders during this time of heightened anxiety:
- COVID-19 can make anyone sick, regardless of race or ethnicity. People of Asian descent, including Chinese Americans, are not more likely to get COVID-19 than any other American.
- Some people are at increased risk of getting COVID-19, including those who have been in close contact with a person known to have COVID-19. People who live in or who have recently been in areas with a spread of the virus are at an increased risk of exposure.
- Someone who has been quarantined or released from isolation does not pose a risk of infection to other people. For up-to-date information, visit CDC’s coronavirus disease 2019 web page.
You can help stop the COVID-19 by knowing the signs and symptoms:
- Shortness of breath
Seek medical advice if you:
- Developed symptoms AND have been in close contact with a person known to have COVID-19 or if you live in or have recently been in an area with ongoing spread of COVID-19.
The following are the simple things you need to do to help keep yourself and others healthy:
- Wash your hands, often, with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing; going to the bathroom; and before eating or preparing food.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
- Stay home when you are sick.
- Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
This situation is new to all of us and it is imperative we communicate effectively. We remain committed to our community and ask that everyone do their part to keep each other healthy and safe!
