How to Support Your Tahoe Community in the Coronavirus Pandemic
It is a difficult time to be a tourist destination. Between the damage to our economy and the added threat of people still visiting from coronavirus hot spots, our Tahoe community has a tough battle to fight in this pandemic. We at 911 Restoration know we’ll make it through. As disheartening as this era is, we believe a Fresh Start waits on the other side of this crisis. But to get there, we must all be vigilant and considerate of our neighbors.
If you are not a member of a high-risk population, remember that many in our community are. This virus is highly contagious and can be spread by individuals long before they are even aware they carry coronavirus. Protect those who are vulnerable to severe illness and mortality. Only leave home for essential business. When you do go out, wear a cloth mask and stay six feet away from others. Wash your hands often, for 20 seconds at a time.
Those who live with vulnerable individuals should provide a protected space for that person, if possible. Enter the designated room only as needed, and wear a mask and gloves when you interact with your high-risk family member. Decide now how your family will handle it if anyone in your household becomes extremely ill. Familiarize yourself with the common symptoms. If you or anyone in your home develops a cough, fever, or shortness of breath, call your doctor for advice. For more severe symptoms such as inability to breathe, confusion, or bluish lips or face, seek medical attention immediately.
Help limit exposure to coronavirus by regularly disinfecting surfaces and objects. This is important in a home environment and absolutely imperative for a commercial facility still in operation. The virus remains viable on surfaces for hours and even days. Diligent deep cleaning tells your employees and guests that their best interest is your top priority.
Consider contracting professional help for these important sanitization procedures. 911 Restoration of Tahoe provides expert disinfection according to CDC and EPA protocols. We serve both residential and commercial properties in Tahoe and beyond. Our expert technicians are thorough and sensitive to your challenges at this time.

Tahoe has taken a powerful hit, but we’re still as resilient as ever. If you could use peace of mind in these strange times, call 911 Restoration today.
