Update March 13, 2020 - Coronavirus (COVID-19) and SUN 'n FUN Aerospace Expo Schedule Update
We know there is a growing concern as the outbreak and impacts of the coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to evolve. We want to ensure our tenants and users that we are taking extra steps and precautions to ensure our cleaning efforts are enhanced in all common areas of our facilities. In addition, we are adding hand sanitizing stations throughout our buildings for your use and protection.
As a part of this precaution, and after much discussion, it has been decided to postpone the annual SUN ‘n FUN Aerospace Expo until May 5th – 10th. Confirmation of this change will take place on April 17th as we continually monitor the situation and additional information becomes available for a more informed decision.
It is important to recognize the symptoms of COVID-19, which is similar to the common cold or flu. Symptoms include the following: runny nose, cough, sore throat, headache, fever, shortness of breath and feeling generally unwell. COVID-19 spreads by touch of an infected person or surface and occasionally through respiratory droplets from coughing and sneezing.
The Florida Department of Health recommends washing your hands frequently and that everyone practice good hygiene by covering coughs and frequently cleaning surfaces such as doorknobs and phones. Avoid sharing personal household items, such as dishes, drinking glasses, cups, eating utensils, towels, or clothing with other people.
As always, avoid close contact with those who may be sick and if you are sick or feel generally unwell, we encourage you to stay home to prevent the spread of illness.
The City of Lakeland set-up an informational website at http://www.lakelandgov.net/COVID19 with additional public information on COVID-19 and the City's response.
