We have a working group of people who formed to deal with Covid. 2-3 have 
training in public health and emergency management. They watch the city 
requirements and read the latest information, and adjust requirements 

There is no penalty for not following them but everyone does. They aren’t 
complicated — wear a mask in public areas unless outside and well distanced 
from others. Wash hands frequently. One or two people in the CH at a time —this 
applies to people working on computers there or watching TV, not just passing 
through. People can reserve the smaller rooms — exercise, TV, office, etc. — to 
use one at a time. Guest Rooms closed and visitors in general discouraged. 
People who have gone away get tested when they come back and quarantine until 
they have the results.

Last week they were thinking about how many  people can be in the great room 
with masks and be distanced. But an article yesterday said with ill-fitting 
masks, you can’t  even be behind someone— the aerosol can go out the edges of 
the mask to the back.
