In accordance with CDC recommendations, we will strongly encourage staff and guests to maintain six-feet of physical separation when possible.
Hand sanitization stations may be made available in common areas as needed and as supplies are available.
CLEANING AND SANITIZATION
The standards recommended by the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services and Centers for Disease Control for cleaning and sanitation operations are being followed.
To minimize direct contact, our employees are wearing face coverings when physical distancing guidelines cannot be practicably followed and may utilize physical barriers as needed.
PLANNING & RESPONSE
We have developed COVID-19 preparedness and response plans for the safety of our employees and customers. In addition, workers who exhibit COVID-19-like symptoms will not be allowed to report for duty.
We encourage all symptomatic employees to seek out COVID-19 testing to reduce the risk of exposure to customers. People with COVID-19 have reported a wide range of symptoms – ranging from mild to severe. Symptoms may appear 2-14 days after exposure to the virus. People with the following symptoms may have COVID-19: fever or chills, cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, fatigue, muscle or body aches, headache, new loss of taste or smell, sore throat, congestion or runny nose, nausea or vomiting, diarrhea.
This list does not include all possible symptoms. CDC will continue to update this list as we learn more about COVID-19.
