Your Health and Well-Being is our Top Priority for the ILA

We are sharing pertinent information regarding the coronavirus (COVID-19) in the hopes to promote understanding and vigilance with our members. We are not health care providers; we cannot provide healthcare guidance but we are disseminating information from the CDC regarding how to best protect ourselves from spreading this virus any further.

We are sharing below, some resources and latest updates about COVID-19:
The CDC website states the following information to the prevention of COVID-19:
There is currently no vaccine to prevent coronavirus disease  (COVID-19). The best way to prevent illness is to avoid being exposed to this virus. However, as a reminder, CDC always recommends everyday preventive actions to help prevent the spread of respiratory diseases including:


  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
  • 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 using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe.
  • Follow CDC’s recommendations for using a facemask.
  • CDC does not recommend that people who are well wearing a facemask to protect themselves from respiratory diseases, including COVID-19.
  • Facemasks should be used by people who show symptoms of COVID-19 to help prevent the spread of the disease to others. The use of facemasks is also crucial for health workers and people who are taking care of someone in close settings (at home or in a health care facility).
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom, before eating, and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
  • If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol. Always wash hands with soap and water if hands are visibly dirty.


For information about handwashing, see CDC’s Handwashing website.

If you elect to go into self-quarantine or self-isolation, please follow the advice and guidance of your healthcare provider and the CDC.
