The Board of Directors and President of Harlem Congregations for Community Improvement, Inc. (“HCCI”) are recommending to all who are affiliated with HCCI stay aware of the latest information on the COVID-19: Novel Coronavirus outbreak, available on the World Health Organization website and other reputable sources along with the national and local public health authorities. COVID-19 is affecting people in our community and around the globe. We recommend that you take precautions to remain safe and healthy as we continue to do the work of HCCI. Any adjustments to HCCI’s program and services schedules will be announced on an as needed basis.
Below is a list of resources you may access to assist you with understanding ways to protect yourself during the COVID-19 crisis:
World Health Organization (WHO) HYPERLINK https://www.who.int/emergencies/diseases/novel-coronavirus-2019
Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC) HYPERLINK https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/index.html
New York City Department of Health (NYCDOH) HYPERLINK https://www1.nyc.gov/site/doh/index.page
The City of New York has published guidance for the general public that may be helpful.
“As the City pivots to a lower threshold of monitoring for those showing symptoms, those who are well should continue to take basic precautions while going about their lives: wash your hands, use alcohol-based hand sanitizer, and cover your nose and mouth when coughing or sneezing.”
“The virus can only transmit when bodily fluid, such as through a sneeze, cough, or spit, is transferred from a person who has the virus, directly into another person. The virus does not survive for more than two or three minutes in open air."
Our organization encourages all impacted to be vigilant, proactive and to take reasonable precautions in your approach to this healthcare crisis.
