Town of Stockbridge update on COVID-19.
On Monday (3/9), the Governor ordered the activation of the State Emergency Operations Center (SEOC) to support the ongoing work of the Vermont Department of Health – Health Operations Center and expand the capacity of state government to coordinate the COVID-19 response. The SEOC activated at 7:30 am Wednesday (3/11/20) and will continue operations daily from 8:00 am – 4:00 pm, Monday through Friday, for the foreseeable future.
The Selectboard is currently working on gathering accurate information in order to develop specific plans for dealing with the now declared pandemic of COVID-19 at the local level. The Selectboard will be reviewing the information and be discussing at the next board meeting on 3/19/2020.
There is currently no vaccine to prevent COVID-19 infection. Person-to-person spread of the virus is thought to occur mainly via respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes. Much is still unknown about how the virus spreads. Take these everyday preventive actions to help stop the spread of germs:
- Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
- Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
- Stay home when you are sick.
- Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
- Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.
- If you feel ill, call your doctor.
