As the health professionals predicted, the number of individuals in the US infected with the virus continues to grow. In addition to other states in the country, there are now confirmed cases in Pennsylvania, New York and New Jersey.
For up to date status of the COVID-19 situation, continue to follow the Federal, State and Local Health Department Websites. This week we are adding additional resource links for you - the website for the City of Philadelphia Department of Public Health
https://www.phila.gov/departments/department-of-public-health/, and the Pennsylvania Department of Health https://www.health.pa.gov/Pages/default.aspx These agencies continue to post information on COVID-19 and you may want to go there for news with a local perspective. We also recommend visiting the Centers for Disease Control website (www.cdc.gov) for more nationally focused news and updates.
COVID-19 is a health situation that everyone should take seriously and we need to be prepared in the event there is an increase in confirmed reports within the SEPTA service region. Right now, most of all, we encourage everyone to remain calm and follow the good hygiene practices recommended to prevent respiratory illnesses, flu, and colds at work and at home.
