To Our Members:

As the COVID-19 situation continues to rapidly evolve, the Fund & Trustees are closely monitoring the situation using credible information and sources.   We encourage you to follow the CDC guidelines for personal health and social distancing, be mindful of your activities and surroundings and educate yourself on the tools available to you to care for yourselves and your loved ones.

Take steps to protect yourself.............Clean your hands often

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds especially after you have been in a public place, or after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing. 
  • If soap and water are not readily available, use a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol.
  • Cover all surfaces of your hands and rub them together until they feel dry.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.

                                   Avoid close contact.........

  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Put distance between yourself and other people if COVID-19 is spreading in your community. This is especially important  for people who are at higher risk of getting very sick.

The Employee Assistance Program (EAP) is also available  24/7 for help cope with the unknown, whether it’s the coronavirus or any other stressor.
