Carbondale Chamber of Commerce is closely monitoring the reports of COVID-19 in the area and taking appropriate precautions for all social and networking gatherings scheduled.
We encourage members to follow the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention safeguards, such as washing hands with soap for at least 20 seconds, covering coughs and sneezes, properly disposing of tissues, and avoiding others who are sick.
If you are experiencing symptoms identified by the CDC regarding the virus, please refrain from attending Chamber events or any public gathering, and take necessary steps to get tested as needed.
The Jackson County Health Department encourages everyone to use trusted sources of information, such as the CDC, Illinois Department of Public Health, JCHD and local medical providers.
