A Reminder About Virus and COVID-19 Prevention

Michelle Machen Mauser News

As we enter cold and flu season, help mitigate the spread of COVID-19 and other respiratory illnesses by remaining vigilant and taking preventative measures.

At Mauser Packaging Solutions, we are committed to providing a safe and healthy workplace for our employees, particularly in the context of the current pandemic. We continue to monitor and adhere to federal, state and local guidelines and preventative measures to provide a safe work environment in our facilities.

Please be respectful by following the preventative measures outlined by the CDC to help mitigate the spread of viruses:

Get COVID-19 and flu vaccines

Being vaccinated will reduce your venerability to viruses. Vaccines can protect you, your loved ones and your co-workers from flu and COVID-19. COVID-19 vaccines are free and available to anyone who wants one in the US. To find a COVID-19 vaccine near you, use Vaccines.gov to fine a location near you, then call or visit their website to make an appointment.

Practice social distancing

Continue to practice social distancing by maintaining six feet of distance from others when in groups of all sizes. As the holidays approach, choose smaller gatherings and leverage technology to visit virtually with elderly or at-risk family and friends. Minimize gestures, such as handshakes and hugs, that promote close contact.

Wear a face covering

Wear a face covering when around people who don’t live in your household, when unable to maintain distance, or when required by local guidelines. Choose a face covering that has two or more layers of washable, breathable fabric, completely covers your nose and mouth and fits snugly against the side of your face.

Practice good hygiene and cleaning habits

Wash your hands frequently. Use hand sanitizer when soap and water are unavailable. Regularly clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces.

Stay home when sick

Stay home from work and other public places if you experience symptoms of COVID-19 including fever or chills, cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, fatigue, muscle or body aches, headache, new loss of taste or smell, sore throat, congestion or runny nose, nausea or vomiting and diarrhea. Isolate from others and leave your home only to seek medical attention.
