The Ponderay Police Department would like our citizens to know that during these troubling times, we are still out there serving you! As part of that service, we would like to offer the following suggestions on how to help yourselves during the COVID-19 threat.
1. Wash your hands frequently with soap and water for approximately 20 seconds. If you hum the alphabet song, it is about 20 seconds. Hand sanitizer that is at least 60 percent alcohol will do the trick as well.
2. Avoid touching yourself in the mouth, nose eyes...etc (Face) with unwashed hands.
3. Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces and objects.
4. Cover your coughs and sneezes.
5. Practice "social distancing".
6. Avoid close contact with people who are sick. Stay home if you are sick or getting sick.
