In addressing Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19), the Housing Authority of Joliet will rely on the guidance and direction from the Illinois Department of Public Health.

While the risk of contracting COVID-19/Novel Coronavirus remains relatively low, public health agencies are recommending the following precautions:

  • Practice good hygiene
    • Washing your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds is best.
    • Use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol if you cannot wash with soap and water
    • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Observe respiratory etiquette
    • Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when you cough or sneeze
    • If you do not have a tissue, cough or sneeze into your upper sleeve, not your hands.
    • Dispose of your used tissue in a waste basket after each use.
  • Keeping surfaces sanitized and clean
    • Property Management staff will continue to wipe down common area surfaces including, door knobs, elevator walls, and common area kitchen counters and tables.
