  • NACC Encourages Healthy Networking Protocol


    Neosho Area Chamber of Commerce is closely monitoring the outbreak of the respiratory illness caused by a coronavirus known as COVID-19. According to the Newton County Health Department, the immediate risk of this new virus to the public in Newton County is believed to be low at this time; however, the NACC team has increased precautionary protocols, training and communication.
     
    Unless otherwise noticed, upcoming events are taking place as scheduled. Should the health and safety situation change, information will be shared via email and will be posted on the Chamber’s Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/neoshocc/.
     
    Through updates from the Centers for Disease Control and the Missouri Department of Health & Senior Services, along with direct dialogue with the Newton County Health Department and city officials, NACC personnel are tracking the latest information. Precautionary measures include enhancing onsite communication and preventative actions (outlined below), placing hand washing stations at both entrances at Business Expo entrances, placing an increased number of hand sanitizer stations throughout the Business Expo, increasing the frequency of cleaning and disinfecting of commonly touched objects and providing ongoing training for staff and vendors regarding best practices for providing a safe and healthy environment.
     
    Everyone is urged to practice precautions to help prevent the spread of respiratory viruses, including:

     

    • Stay home when you are sick.
    • Wash your hands often with soap and warm water for at least 20 seconds.
    • If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
    • Avoid handshakes and hugs. Elbow bumps are encouraged.
    • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth.
    • Avoid close contact with people who 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.
