Special Events (as of 3/13/2020): The Parks and Recreation Department here in the Town of Stallings has decided to postpone our upcoming special events. This is in response to a recommendation from the CDC, NC Emergency Management Agencies, and Gov. Roy Cooper that municipalities consider cancelling or postponing mass gatherings in the state of North Carolina. This is not a decision we make hastily or lightly, but after reviewing all the relevant information, it is the necessary choice to do our part to reduce the impact of COVID-19 outbreak conditions in our community. We will reevaluate on July 6 to determine future actions.
How to prevent the spread of coronavirus and other influenza?
- Stay home when you are sick with influenza-like illness. Sick individuals should stay home if they are ill with influenza-like illness until at least 24-hours after they are free from fever.
- Wash your hands frequently with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. Use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol if soap and water are not available.
- Avoid touching your nose, mouth and eyes with unwashed hands.
- Cover your coughs and sneezes. It may prevent those around you from getting sick.
- Wash your hands or use hand sanitizer after coughing, sneezing, or blowing your nose. Make sure to throw tissues in the trash immediately after using.
- Keep frequently touched common surfaces clean. For example, telephones, computer equipment, etc. Regular household cleaning sprays and wipes are acceptable for use.
- Try not to use other people’s phones, desks, offices, or other work tools and equipment. If necessary, consider cleaning them first with a disinfectant.
- Avoid crowded areas or close contact with others. Especially sick individuals.
- Practice social distancing. Optimize distance between individuals, ideally at least six feet apart.
Cleaning and sanitizing tips for work and home
- Use a diluted bleach solution (e.g., dilute bleach with 1 part bleach and 50 parts water) or a household disinfectant with a label that says “EPA-registered” for coronaviruses. To make a bleach solution at home, add 4 teaspoons of bleach to 1 quart (4 cups) of water, or 5 tablespoons (1/3 cup) of bleach to 1 gallon of water.
- Read labels of cleaning products and follow recommendations provided on product labels. Labels contain instructions for safe and effective use of the cleaning product including precautions you should take when applying the product, such as wearing gloves or eye protection and making sure you have good ventilation during use of the product.
- Clean all touchable surfaces you potentially come in contact with, such as counters, tabletops, doorknobs, bathroom fixtures, toilets, phones, keyboards, tablets, and bedside tables.
- For hard (nonporous) surfaces such as tabletops, screens, seat arms, windows, and walls: remove any visible contamination and clean and disinfect the area with EPA Registered products.
- For soft (porous) surfaces such as carpeted floor or seat cushions: remove as much of the contaminant as possible, cover the area with an absorbent substance (e.g., paper towel), and contain the area as much as possible. Remove the absorbent substance and any remaining material, and then clean and disinfect the area with EPA Registered products.
- For launderable items such as clothes and linens, read and follow directions on labels of laundry or clothing items and detergent. In general, wash and dry with the warmest temperatures recommended on the label.
- Safely dispose of waste inside a plastic bag.
- Consider making a plan for your home. Information on household readiness can be found here: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/community/home/checklist-household-ready.html
