Over the next few weeks and into summer we anticipate that states will begin to ease stay-at-home restrictions, more businesses will open up, and social gatherings will occur. It is critically important that, as a Mather employee, we continue to be vigilant on safe practices when it comes to the spread of Coronavirus disease.

Please watch this short video which provides an important update.

Take these steps to reduce the risk of contracting COVID-19. Do this for yourself, your family, your colleagues, and the people you serve each day:

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. Use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol if soap and water are not available.
  • Practice “physical distancing” when out of your home; stay 6 feet away from others while shopping, walking, etc.
  • Wear a mask or face covering when in public. Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
  • Avoid large gatherings or where more than 10 people are gathered.
    • Avoid shaking hands or hugging people who are not part of your household.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces at home and work.
  • Wash your work uniforms in hot water, or at least as hot as possible, after every use to help prevent the spread of infection.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Stay home if you are sick or suspect you are becoming sick.

Take care and stay well.
