The town of Greenwich is urging anyone who is feeling ill, whether with symptoms of the flu or any other illness, to stay home and not visit public buildings – whether it is Town Hall, the Senior Center, The Nathaniel Witherell nursing home or any one of our public schools.
The Town is installing additional informational signage and hand-sanitizing stations in public buildings.
The Town Hall building was sprayed with disinfectant on Saturday, March 7. This practice has been conducted daily at the Greenwich Senior Center since March 2 and will continue in the building until further notice.
Residents are urged to use the standard protocols and precautions when dealing with colds and the flu: Stay at least six feet away from someone who is sick; avoid shaking hands; wash hands frequently or use a 60% alcohol-based hand rub and air-dry hands.
