Take Actions to Limit the Spread of the Virus

Typical symptoms of the coronavirus include headaches, a fever, shortness of breath, a cough, and a sore throat but not everyone experiences the same symptoms. The American Red Cross suggests the following guidelines to help reduce the spread of the virus:

  • Avoid going out unless necessary and limit groups to less than 10 people.
  • Practice social distancing (better described as physical distancing) of at least six feet when interacting with others
  • Wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds after being in any public place or after sneezing or coughing. If soap is not available, use hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol.
  • Avoid touching any part of your face if you haven’t washed your hands.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick, and stay home if you are sick unless you have to seek medical attention.
  • Cover your nose and mouth when coughing or sneezing with either a tissue or your elbow or sleeve if a tissue isn’t available.
  • Wear a face mask if you are sick and around others or when entering a doctor’s office.
  • Clean and disinfect surfaces around you daily, including doorknobs, keyboards, light switches, desks, counters, faucets, sinks, toilets, and so forth.
  • No age group should consider themselves exempt from getting this virus. Older people and those with underlying health issues are more at risk, but young and healthy people can infect others without even realizing it. Please take all precautions seriously.

When the virus pandemic is over we welcome you to join us at Salt & Barrel for our fine seafood and cocktails. Until then please stay safe and healthy!
