Quantum House is taking precautions to prevent the spread of Coronavirus

Mar 11, 2020

Quantum House is taking all precautions to prevent the spread of Coronavirus by following the advice of the CDC.

All volunteers and visitors to the House are prohibited for the month of March. Please check back for updates.

Below are some important reminders. From the CDC:

There is currently no vaccine to prevent Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). The best way to prevent illness is to avoid being exposed to this virus. However, as a reminder, CDC always recommends everyday preventive actions to help prevent the spread of respiratory diseases, including:

  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
  • Stay home when you are sick.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe.
  • Follow CDC’s recommendations for using a facemask.
    • CDC does not recommend that people who are well wear a facemask to protect themselves from respiratory diseases, including COVID-19.
    • Facemasks should be used by people who show symptoms of COVID-19 to help prevent the spread of the disease to  others. The use of facemasks is also crucial for health workers and people who are taking care of someone in close settings (at home or in a health care facility).
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
    • If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol. Always wash hands with soap and water if hands are visibly dirty.

In addition, Quantum House has contacted all current families and future families to advise them to stay home, except to get medical care, if they have been exposed to Coronavirus. Quantum House is a community environment and we must limit the exposure to our families that have a child currently receiving medical treatment, our volunteers and our staff.
