The Village of Montgomery has been monitoring reports and recommendations from our local, state and national health agencies regarding COVID-19 (commonly known as Coronavirus) and continues to take proactive action to prepare for the well-being of our residents.
As we learn more about this COVID-19 virus, the overall consensus from health officials is to be aware and prepare, practice healthy habits and stay informed. This is an evolving situation, and the Village of Montgomery is committed to providing updated information and guidance, as it becomes available.
As preventative measures, health officials are reminding us to:
• Wash your hands often
• Avoid touching eyes, nose or mouth with unwashed hands
• Avoid contact with sick people
• Stay home if you are sick
• Cover mouth/nose with a tissue or sleeve when coughing or sneezing
• Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces
In addition, if you feel sick with a fever, cough, or difficulty breathing or if you have been in contact with someone confirmed with COVID-19, please call your health care provider and notify them of your symptoms and any recent travel. Your health care provider will determine if you need to be seen in the office and if so, will provide special instructions to prevent exposing others.
