Like many of you, Spinal Cord Injury Saskatchewan is monitoring the potential impact of COVID-19 and actively preparing to meet the demands of the evolving situation. The health and safety of our clients, volunteers, supporters and employees is of utmost importance for Spinal Cord Injury Saskatchewan. Therefore, we have determined to suspend all in-person events, consultations and meetings until further notice. We believe this is an important action to take in reinforcing the prevention strategy of social distancing to safeguard the health of our community.
We will continue to monitor the situation and will advise of any changes and updates.
- Avoid touching eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.
- Wash hands frequently and thoroughly, including between fingers, under fingernails and wrists; if soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
- Cover coughs and sneezes using a tissue or into the elbow or sleeve, being sure to cover the mouth, putting used tissue in the garbage and washing hands after or using alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
- If you’re sick, stay home and recover until symptoms have resolved.
