Letter/Video messages from Mayor Lou Sarbone:

Let's Keep Our Creek Family Safe and Healthy

In Broward County, if residents think they have been exposed to COVID-19 through travel or close contact with someone who has, please call 954-412-7300 BEFORE going to healthcare provider for treatment.

People may be able to share the virus before showing symptoms. As a community, let's protect our senior and vulnerable populations. Consider self-isolation. Isolation and quarantine help protect the public by preventing exposure to people who have or may have a contagious disease.

Everyone should be following standard recommendations to prevent infection spread including:

  • Wash your hands regularly with soap and water for at least 20 seconds; use hand sanitizers at home and in the workplace
  • If you are sick, stay home, and follow the advice of your health care provider
  • Cough and sneeze into your elbow, not your hands or into a tissue which should immediately be discarded; avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth
  • Avoid close contact with anyone showing respiratory symptoms (breathing difficulties, cough, runny nose)
  • Over-the-counter masks are generally not an effective deterrent and are not recommended for the public at this time
  • Evaluate your travel plans as conditions warrant; you should rethink traveling to areas that are already under a travel advisory or areas that are experiencing an outbreak of Coronavirus

Just like the flu, certain groups may be at higher risk, including the elderly. Individuals who believe they are experiencing any of the symptoms should contact their health care professional and follow their advice.

Please note that all information is fluid and subject to change frequently so check for updates regularly.

EXECUTIVE ORDERS/PROCLAMATIONS


Beware of Scams
Since more and more of us are staying home due to the coronavirus, the scammers may try to take advantage by cooking up more door-to-door scams. Other communities have been reporting con artists going door-to-door posing as Census workers. One distracts the homeowner, while another sneaks in and steals a bunch of stuff. They could also pose as health care workers, or any other thing related to coronavirus concerns. The fraudsters could also knock on your door and pretend they want to seal your driveway or trim your trees. If you never asked for the help, you certainly don’t need it from a con artist. If you see any activity like this taking place, please call 911 so an officer can check it out.
