At Long Island Meditation, we are committed to keeping our center healthy and clean for all meditation students and staff. Considering the growing concerns about the spread of Coronavirus, we'd like to take the time to let you know what measures we are taking to fulfill our commitment as well as let you know what you can do to help. Let's work together to fight the Coronavirus!
Long Island Meditation Center Actions
*Clean the center 3 times per day, which includes vacuuming and regularly disinfecting surfaces (Including door knobs, door locks, door buzzer, doors, chairs, floor) with a Clorox or Lysol disinfectant
*Constant communication with our entire staff about best hygiene practices, including using mouthwash and hand sanitizer and washing hands often so that we provide a safe and clean meditation environment for people.
*Provide mouthwash and hand sanitizer for our meditation students.
*Take the temperature of all people who come into the center including staff. If there are any fevers, we recommend that meditation students and staff take the time off to get better.
*Keep the center well ventilated to reduce the concentration of airborne germs
*Limit group meditations, group events and interactions and keep a safe distance from meditation students to avoid spreading germs to each other.
What You Can Do To help:
*If you feel sick - Skip a week or two, rest and come back when you are healthy.
*Wash your hands vigorously with soap and water or use hand sanitizer if there is no soap available after: wiping or blowing your nose or coughing or sneezing, using the bathroom, being in contact with or being near someone who is ill, touching handrails, doorknobs, telephones or other things handled by many people, handling garbage or trash and before and after eating, drinking or handling food. The recommended time to wash your hands is 20 seconds
*Wipe your own area you used before and after use
*Cover your mouth and nose when you cough or sneeze. Cough or sneeze into your upper arm or a tissue. But as a friendly reminder, if you are coughing a lot, please avoid coming altogether.
*Put your used tissues in the wastebasket
*Try to avoid touching your nose, mouth and eyes. This is where the virus can get into your body.
*Avoid public areas where there is a lot of people and try to only go out when necessary.
*Stay in well ventilated areas. Ventilation reduces the concentration of airborne germs through removing or diluting airborne droplet nuclei
