CCV Employee Email - Important Flu and Coronavirus Informat…

February 28, 2020

Dear CCV Employee,

Cold and flu season is here, and coronavirus is topping headlines. It is our priority to maintain a safe and healthy work environment for all employees and members at the Club. Influenza The CDC reports that flu activity is high this season. They estimate that there have been at least 29 million flu illnesses, 280,000 hospitalizations, and 16,000 deaths so far. The best way to prevent flu is to get vaccinated each year. Coronavirus A new virus, coronavirus, has been making headlines. The CDC has called this coronavirus “a very serious public health threat,” but adds that its immediate health risk to the general American public is low. There are currently fewer than 20 confirmed cases in the United States. If the coronavirus becomes a considerable threat in our area, we will keep you informed of the CDC’s recommendations for those in the U.S. You can visit for updates. WHAT THE CLUB IS DOING The Club is working to help reduce the risk of cold and flu germs invading the workplace. Here are some of the ways we are being proactive: • Sanitizing surfaces often – In addition to the Club’s normal cleaning routine, Support Services has implemented extra precautions to sanitize any surface touched with the hands (touchpoints) multiple times per day. • Providing tools so you can do the same – Hand sanitizer, tissues, and disinfecting wipes are available for employees to use in the workplace. Ask your supervisor if you need additional supplies. HOW YOU CAN HELP Here are several steps you can take to keep yourself and those around you healthy during cold and flu season: • Keep your work areas clean – Each department director has been tasked with obtaining disinfecting wipes, hand sanitizer, and tissues for their areas. Take advantage of them, and help Support Services by wiping down frequently touched surfaces and items multiple times during your shift. • Get a flu shot – This is one of the most effective methods for preventing the flu. If you did not get one during the onsite clinics, it is not too late . Flu shots are still available, and with CCV insurance (or any employer plan), flu shots will cost you $0 out of pocket. • Stay home – If you are sick, or experiencing flu-like symptoms, please contact your manager about staying home. If you need medical treatment, remember that there are two local options that allow you to receive care from the comfort of your home:
