To protect yourself and the health of those around you, we are requesting that if you or those with you are displaying signs of illness, that you not come to the Autism Services’ building.

As a reminder, the best way to protect yourself from coronavirus and other respiratory illnesses is to practice preventive actions every day:

  • Practice proper cough and sneezing etiquette (into the bend of your elbow).
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water; if soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Maintain safe food practices.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Stay home when you are sick.
