While efforts to contain COVID-19 continue to evolve, we have taken proactive and voluntary steps to address the current situation.
1. Additional cleaning and sanitizing
Disinfecting surfaces is one key way to minimize the spread of viruses, according to the CDC. Our teams are adding additional resources to clean and sanitize our centers and have implemented the use of CDC-recommended cleaning and disinfectant solutions.
2. Following CDC-recommended guidelines
Simple personal hygiene is essential to minimizing the spread of the COVID-19 and other viruses. We are actively reminding and encouraging our employees, tenants and each of you to follow CDC preventative measures as part of their daily routines:
- Wash your hands
- Cover your cough
- Stay home if you’re sick
3. Providing visuals for general hygiene
Our employees and tenants are at the epicenter of everything we do—their health, safety and knowledge are absolutely critical. Here is how we are supporting them so they can better support you:
- We are creating visual reminders for following CDC-recommended guidelines for use with their teams
We are monitoring the situation very closely and following the guidance of the CDC. We are in direct communication with department of health officials in each of our markets and following their recommendations for preventative measures, in addition to the CDC.
We will react accordingly should the situation progress.
