Seven Key Actions for Public Health

According to the CDC, there are seven key actions we all should take to minimize spread of respiratory viruses such as seasonal flu and COVID-19: 
  • 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
  • Wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds 
  • Practice social distancing

Supporting Local Business

Seven Simple Ways You Can Support Businesses and Shop Local Now

Buy a Gift Card – Support service based businesses by purchasing a gift card now to use later. Your investment can help the business sustain themselves during this time and you’ll be able to treat yourself later!

Buy Now, Pick Up Later – Support product based businesses by purchasing an item now to be picked up later. Many local restaurants are currently offering take-out or curbside pick up. 

Tip & Say Thank You – Many employees are continuing to work with the public. Let them know you appreciate their hard work by tipping appropriately and remembering to say thank you.

Continue Your Membership or Subscription – Many organizations rely on membership or subscription based due. Support businesses by continuing these services.

Engage Online – Support local businesses by engaging with their online content. Spread encouragement by posting a positive comment, liking a post, and sharing content.

Talk to a Business Owner – Reach out to a local business owner and ask what you can do to support them at this time. Let them know they’re not alone.

Stay Positive – Remember that we are a community and we are all in this together! Rather than spreading fear, seek opportunities to lend a helping hand and spread a positive message.

The Hazardous Waste Collection Facility hours have been reduced and the Reuse Program has been suspended. The facility is open for residential drop off on Saturdays ONLY from 8-4:15.

Businesses may bring green waste to the Landfill for free. Bulk purchases of Mesa Magic Compost can be made at the Landfill. Bagged Mesa Magic Compost is available at Chelsea’s Nursery, Bookcliff Gardens, Valley Grown Nursery, Mt. Garfield Greenhouse, Orchard Mesa True Value, Peach Tree True Value, Fruita True Value, the Fruita Co-Op, and the Palisade Co-Op.

The Landfill and Transfer Stations will remain open to the public. However, it is strongly suggested that residents limit their visits and utilize commercial waste haulers whenever possible.
