Educating the Community on Seasonal Safety

At the Metropolitan Safety Council, we want to keep our community safe year-round. This is why we offer seasonal safety information, which includes preparedness for each holiday season. By understanding these resources, you can prevent dangers from befalling you and your family during the holidays.

Every holiday season carries its own risks, which is why it is important to be aware of them. Whether it’s Christmas, Mardi Gras, Thanksgiving, New Year’s, or the 4th of July, you must remain vigilant during the holiday season.

COVID-19 Information

A novel coronavirus is a new coronavirus that has not been previously identified. The virus causing coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), is not the same as the coronaviruses that commonly circulate among humans and cause mild illness, like the common cold.

A diagnosis with coronavirus 229E, NL63, OC43, or HKU1 is not the same as a COVID-19 diagnosis. Patients with COVID-19 will be evaluated and cared for differently than patients with common coronavirus diagnosis.
