General Guidelines regarding COVID-19
In respect to the growing concern regarding the continued reporting of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) in the United States, we want you to know that the well-being and safety of our employees, clients, guests and their families is our priority. Live Wire Athens is actively monitoring the CDC (Center for Disease Control), the Governor’s office, and the Georgia Department of Public Health websites for updates. According to the Governor of the State of Georgia, “Bars, Restaurants, and Reception Halls” are legally allowed to operate whilst following guidelines, as stated in Executive Order 6.29.20.02. Currently, Live Wire Athens is open to the public and booking private events. Additionally, public gatherings, while limited, are allowable whilst following the guidelines, as stated in Executive Order 6.29.20.02. (updated 7/06/20)
It is important to follow clear and reliable sources for keeping up with the current information regarding this and any virus. The most official, up to date, and practical information can be found at the CDC site located at https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/index.html. An additional site for trusted information is the Georgia Department of Public Health at https://dph.georgia.gov/. There is currently no vaccine to prevent the Coronavirus (Covid-19). The best way to prevent this illness and most viruses is to avoid being exposed. Everyday preventive actions should be taken, including:
- Masks are now required and we will check the temperature of every customer upon arrival with a contact-free thermometer.
- 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 the CDC’s recommendations for using a facemask.
- CDC does not recommend that people who are well wear a facemask to protect themselves from respiratory diseases, including Coronavirus.
- Facemasks should be used by people who show symptoms to help prevent the spread of the disease.
- 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.
Live Wire Athens practices the above, and the commonly accepted precautionary measures to prevent the spread of all communicable viruses and disease, including COVID-19.
Live Wire Athens will closely monitor the CDC and the Georgia Department of Public Health for updates and advisories specific to our region.
