Coronavirus Update from the City of Springboro, Thursday, March 12, 2020
The safety of our public and employees are a priority for the City of Springboro. As Gov. DeWine stated, the State’s goal is to slow down or reduce community spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19).
As a City with several buildings open to the public, note that at this time, all City-managed buildings (City Building and Police Department, Performing Arts Center, Heatherwoode Golf Club and our nine parks) will continue to operate as usual. It is the decision of the group or individual whether to participate in any activities scheduled in these facilities.
This is a rapidly changing situation. Federal, State and local updates will be ongoing. We are working with the Warren County Combined Health District and continue to monitor the situation.
We encourage our residents and businesses to be vigilant in taking everyday prevention measures to slow the transmission of this virus.
Follow these precautions from the Center for Disease Control:
Take steps to protect yourself
Clean your hands often
- Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds especially after you have been in a public place, or after blowing your nose, coughing or sneezing.
- If soap and water are not readily available, use a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol. Cover all surfaces of your hands and rub them together until they feel dry.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.
Avoid close contact
Take steps to protect others
Cover coughs and sneezes
- Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when you cough or sneeze or use the inside of your elbow.
Throw used tissues in the trash.
The CDC does not recommend any additional precautions for the general public at this time beyond the usual steps that everyone should always take to prevent illness and stay healthy (such as proper handwashing, covering coughs and sneezes with your arm and avoiding exposure to others who are sick). The CDC continues to stress that risk is low for the general public. Click here for a link to the Center for Disease Control information regarding the coronavirus.
