Heightened Hygiene Practices

As is typical during any flu season, public health officials recommend individuals take a number of steps to protect both their health and the health of those around them, which include:

  • Wash hands with soap and warm water for 20 seconds or use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol. 
  • Avoid touching eyes, nose or mouth with unwashed hands.  
  • Avoid close contact with individuals who are sick.
  • N95 masks are NOT recommended outside of a healthcare setting. Surgical masks can be worn by sick individuals to reduce their likelihood of spreading germs.
  • If someone becomes sick with a respiratory symptoms like fever and cough, they should stay away from work, school and other people to avoid spreading the illness and seek treatment from their healthcare provider.

The Town of Apple Valley will continue to monitor the situation and immediately inform the community if any specific precautions or guidance are provided by either the Department of Public Health or the Office of Emergency Services.
