As of April 3, 2020 the CDC recommends wearing cloth face coverings in public settings where other social distancing measures are difficult to maintain (e.g., grocery stores and pharmacies), especially in areas of significant community-based transmission. Face coverings should be worn, and, preferably gloves, when exiting your unit to assist in this measure.
Please note that Arlington County provides ongoing updates at this website:
The impact of COVID-19 (coronavirus) on our community and our fellow citizens is top of mind for all of us. We appreciate the measures many of our neighbors are already taking to support one another and to keep yourselves and others healthy. As a precaution to help prevent the spread of germs, the Board has arranged for the custodial company to perform additional cleaning and disinfecting tasks in each building.
To help bolster those efforts, please keep the following health & safety suggestions in mind:
• Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
• Avoid touching your face, including eyes, nose, and mouth, with unwashed hands.
• Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, or into your elbow rather than your hands.
• Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces, such as door knobs, light switches, keys, cell phones, and countertops.
• Stay home when you are sick. Find more information on what to do if you are sick here:
Many of us are practicing social distancing, to the extent that we are able, to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 in the community. Please try to be extra courteous of your neighbors who may be working from home or who have their children at home while schools are closed. This includes being mindful of noise-producing activities, continuing to dispose of appropriate trash and recycling in the designated dumpsters and bins in the parking lots, avoiding/limiting in-unit smoking, and maintaining a more safe distance (minimum 6-10 feet) when entering/exiting and when outdoors with or without pets.
