Good hygiene is the best defense – we can’t stress this part enough – both at work and at home Frequent hand washing (soap and water preferred) or use of an alcohol-based hand sanitizer. Wiping frequently-touched surfaces with antiseptic wipes (keyboard, phone, mouse, etc.). Follow cough and sneeze etiquette (into a sleeve or tissue). Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth with unwashed hands If you’re feeling ill – stay home, rest and recover – this is always good advice, and even more so when dealing with a virus outbreak. If you have flu or cold symptoms, stay home and rest – it protects you and those around you. And, if you are at all concerned, please contact a medical professional.
If you have any questions about COVID-19, please contact The Government of Canada’s coronavirus information line (1-833-784-4397), which is available from 7:00 a.m. to midnight (EST) seven days a week.
The auctions are a great time, but we’d rather see you healthy then ill. If you really want to bid, bid online and we’ll ship it to you.
