A word about COVID-19, the Novel (New) Coronavirus

The White House has released the following guidelines regarding COVID-19 on March 16, 2020:

  • Listen to and follow the directions of your state and local authorities.
  • If you feel sick, stay home.  Do not go to work.  Contact your medical provider.
  • If your children are sick, keep them at home.  Do not send them to school.  Contact your medical provider.*
  • If someone in your household has tested positive for the coronavirus, keep the entire household at home.  Do not go to work.  Do not go to school.  Contact your medical provider.
  • If you are an older person, stay home and away from other people.**
  • If you are a person with a serious underlying health condition that can put you at increased risk (for example, a condition that impairs your lung or heart function or weakens your immune system), stay home and away from other people.
  • Even if you are young, or otherwise healthy, you are at risk and your activities can increase the risk for others. It is critical that you do your part to stop the spread of the coronavirus:
    • Work or engage in schooling from home whenever possible.
    • If you work in a critical infrastructure industry, as defined by the Department of Homeland Security, such as healthcare services and pharmaceutical and food supply, you have a special responsibility to maintain your normal work schedule.  You and your employers should follow CDC guidance to protect your health at work.
    • Avoid social gatherings in groups of more than 10 people.***
    • Avoid eating or drinking in bars, restaurants, and food courts – use drive-thru, pickup, or delivery options.
    • Avoid discretionary travel, shopping trips, and social visits.
    • Do not visit nursing homes or retirement or long-term care facilities unless to provide critical assistance.
    • Practice good hygiene:
      • Wash your hands, especially after touching any frequently used item or surface.
      • Avoid touching your face.
      • Sneeze or cough into a tissue, or the inside of your elbow.
      • Disinfect frequently used items and surfaces as much as possible.
  • *School operations can accelerate the spread of the coronavirus.  Governors of states with evidence of community transmission should close schools in affected and surrounding areas.  Governors should close schools in communities that are near areas of community transmission, even if those areas are in neighboring states.  In addition, state and local officials should close schools where coronavirus has been identified in the population associated with the school.  States and localities that close schools need to address childcare needs of critical responders, as well as the nutritional needs of children.
  • **Older people are particularly at risk from the coronavirus.  All states should follow Federal guidance and halt social visits to nursing homes and retirement and long-term care facilities.
  • ***In states with evidence of community transmission, bars, restaurants, food courts, gyms, and other indoor and outdoor venues where groups of people congregate should be closed.

Here at Twin Oaks we are taking recommended precautions to ward off COVID-19 and other germs such as limiting the number of people in our office, and disinfecting the check in counter, door knobs, washing machines, showerhouses and other shared surfaces several times daily.

Due to COVID-19, we have streamlined our check-in procedure to get you to your site without having to have much human contact. If you do not feel comfortable coming in to the office to register, we will just give you your map info as we lead you to your site, and you can call up to the office to pay for your stay after setting up. You may even call before you arrive and pre-pay for your site to guarantee it. There are no refunds for the guarantee, but we are very busy and this will ensure a spot that you can simply glide right into and glide back out in the morning when you hit the road. No need to actually come in. If there is anything else you need feel free to call us at any time. Our staff will jump on the golf cart and bring you whatever you need. Our daytime office number (9am-6pm) is 478-987-9361 and our after-hours help number is 404-634-8186.

The CDC website continues to do an excellent job of keeping the public informed.
