Everyday Preventive Measures
Person-to-person spread of the virus is thought to occur mainly via respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes. Much is still unknown about how the virus spreads. Take these everyday preventive actions to help stop the spread of germs:
- Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
- Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
- 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.

The Town of Mendon needs your help. The Vermont Council on Rural Development offers towns a program which is designed for community members to prioritize and choose strategic goals and vision for their community. A state-wide visiting resource team will be available to provide advice and expertise to help them get there. A Community Visit meeting will be held in April to identify community goals. The Town of Mendon is seeking 2 more volunteers to join a steering committee to organize the visit and implement strategies to promote community involvement at the meeting. This is a limited time commitment. This program cannot happen without volunteers. Please contact Sara Tully, Town Administrator if you are interested in helping or have questions about the program. Please click the links below for more information on the program. https://www.mendonvt.org/community-visit-program/
