Guidance for attending AARP Events

In the face of the coronavirus spread, we realize that many of you have questions and concerns about up-coming AARP events. Rest assured that AARP is closely monitoring the guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and local health authorities. At this time, none of these government agencies has recommended event cancellations in our _(insert local jurisdiction). We will continue to monitor the situation on a daily basis and update information as appropriate.

At AARP, our main concern is the health and welfare of our member, staff and volunteers. We urge you to follow the CDC’s guidance during this outbreak to avoid contracting the virus or spreading it to others. We also urge you to use your discretion when attending any AARP event or any other public event. According to the CDC, the best ways to prevent illness and help reduce the spread of respiratory diseases, includes:

· Staying home when you are sick

· Avoiding close contact with people who are sick

· Avoiding touching your eyes, nose, and mouth

· Covering your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash

· Cleaning and disinfecting frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe

· Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom, before eating, and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing

· If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol. Always wash hands with soap and water if hands are visibly dirty.
