As you are aware, concerns about the COVID-19 virus (aka coronavirus) are increasing and, as with other businesses around the country, the WHA is actively monitoring developments and will do whatever is necessary to protect our staff and residents. The virus symptoms manifest as a mild to severe respiratory illness with fever, cough, and difficulty breathing. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) believes at this time that symptoms may appear in as few as two days or as long as 14 days after exposure.

The WHA is working diligently to provide all staff and residents the provide all information pertenint to the Coronavirus Disease 2019 situation. While we are always there for you via email/phone, we encourage you to utilize the various remote tools available especially the CDC and the World Health Oganization (WHO).

Here are some informational resources regarding the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) and how to keep your communities safe and healthy. In addition, please remember to check with your local health department and local governments.

    - Avoid close contact with those who are already sick.
    - Cover your nose and mouth when coughing or sneezing with a tissue or the crook of your arm.
    - Wash your hands often with soap and water.
