Social Hygiene Guidelines for SDCOE Staff Delivering Supplies  

Updated 4/6/2020 
 
 

Most Importantly, Prevention:

  • Please stay home if you are at higher risk for severe symptoms of COVID-19: over age 65 OR have an underlying health condition.
  • Please stay home if you are ill (fever, cough, sneezing, sore throat, new rash).  
 

At Home as You Prepare to Work:

  • Collect your ID badge and prepare to wear it
  • Bring a face covering. A cloth “face covering” should cover the nose and mouth and be secured to the head. Make a “do it yourself” (DIY) version from: T-shirts, bathing suits, towels, bandana, and pillowcases. DIY face coverings made from clothing can be more easily cleaned, compared to surgical masks. DIY helps reserve surgical masks for health care providers!
  • The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has instructions and tips on “sew and no-sew” face coverings.
  • If you don’t have or can’t provide one: SDCOE has ordered a supply and will provide one for you once they arrive. 
 
 

At Student’s Home Site:

  • Call ahead to arrange delivery of supplies (When will they be home? Who will receive the materials?)
  • Wear your school badge.
  • Wear your face covering. 
  • Cover your hand before you knock on the door (if you don’t have gloves, your sleeve will work) or use elbow to ring the doorbell.
  • Place materials at door.
  • Back away from door at least 6 feet.
  • Ensure materials are received. 
 

Tips for Wearing, Removing, and Caring for Face Covering:

  • Avoid touching your mask. Avoid readjusting.
  • If you touch or readjust, wash your hands/change your gloves.
  • If you don’t plan on wearing your mask on the way home, bring along a paper bag with your name on it. Paper bags are best because they allow your mask to dry out (plastic bags do not).
  • Don’t share a mask with someone else.
  • Launder and dry your DIY cloth mask after one day of use before using again. 
 

Arriving Back Home:

  • Keep your mask on until you get home.
  • Once home and you remove your mask, store or wash as described above and wash your hands.
