Dear Valued Clients and Guests,
With continued concerns over the spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) in the United States, Windy City Fieldhouse (WCF) wants to assure you that we remain open for business while following the guidance and expectations established by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and Illinois Department of Public Health. We will continue to be diligent with all of our cleaning practices. Our primary goal is to ensure the health and safety of our clients and employees. We have always taken pride in providing a clean and well-managed facility but we have made a few adjustments in order to help with the current situation.
In addition to more frequent sanitization of high-touch surfaces such as door handles, faucets, bathroom surfaces, equipment, etc, we are installing hand-sanitizing stations this week at 4 different locations in the facility. We are also reminding staff to promote universal precautions with our guests including frequent hand washing, avoiding touching their faces and limiting non-essential physical social contact. Obviously, we are also asking staff to remain home if they are not feeling well or suspect they may have come in contact with someone who has contracted the virus.
While we are doing what we can as a facility, we ask that our guests follow these CDC recommended preventive actions:
- Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
- Stay home when you are sick.
- Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
- Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe.
- Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
- If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol. Always wash hands with soap and water if your hands are visibly dirty.
We will continue to closely monitor the situation and provide any updates if needed. We know these times are concerning but we also feel that we need to continue with our daily lives while making the common sense adjustments to ensure our safety and the safety of others. WCF will continue to follow the guidance and expectations established by the CDC and other health organizations throughout the coming weeks.
