What Apex is Doing
To reduce the risk of exposure to our employees and community, the Town of Apex is in the process of implementing the following measures:
- Limiting the number of employees in town buildings whenever possible, through alternating shifts and using remote work to the fullest extent.
- Holding meetings in person only when absolutely necessary.
- Restricting business travel and training, large conferences, or meetings as well as any business travel by airline. This date will be reevaluated frequently.
- Asking employees to wash hands upon entering their building each morning, and any time they enter a different town facility.
- Advising janitorial services to thoroughly wipe and sanitize door handles, stair rails, and light switches when cleaning town facilities.
- Preparing deep clean sanitation plans for any town facility where an exposure may have occurred.
- Continuing use of proper PPE for those who jobs may have a higher risk of exposure.
The Town of Apex follows the guidance of agencies that monitor public health, as it relates to the coronavirus and any other major public health issue. These include the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services, and the Wake County Division of Public Health.
