There are five new COVID-19 positive confirmations in the Township to report today. The total number of positive cases in Washington Township to date is twelve. One has recovered and been released from isolation. An increase was anticipated as testing becomes more prevalent. However, protect yourself by following the CDC guidelines and stay home as much as possible. The Washington Township Health Department continues to monitor the positive cases and the individuals remain in isolation.

 

Under CDC guidelines, you should:

Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth.

Avoid handshakes. Try an elbow bump.

Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.

If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol.

Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.

Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash. If you do not have a tissue, use your sleeve (not your hand).

Get a flu shot to prevent the flu if you have not done so this season.
