Coronavirus Information

Go back

We hope that everyone is well and you and your family remain in good health.  As we enter into the flu season, we want to remind our staff  and our clients about safety measures in the office to keep everyone safe and what to do if you feel sick or are someone who is at risk for COVID-19, the flu, or another communicable disease.

We have attached below the CDC links as both a resource and a tool to keep you safe and prepared.

M. Stanley Metz & Co., Inc. ask that any employee or client who is feeling ill or may have been exposed to COVID19 to take it seriously and refrain from coming to the office and potentially infecting the staff or other clients and, in turn, their family members. We also want to remind staff and our clients to wear a face mask when in public, and around others not within your same household (such as the office).  It is important that staff and our clients adhere to CDC guidelines.

If you have a fever, cough, or other symptoms, you might have COVID-19. Most people have a mild form of the illness and can recover at home. If you think you may have been exposed to COVID-19, contact your healthcare provider.

  • Keep track of your symptoms.
  • If you have an emergency warning sign (including trouble breathing), get emergency medical care immediately.

Symptoms of Coronavirus:

What you need to know

  • Anyone can have mild to severe symptoms.
  • Older adults and people who have severe underlying medical conditions like heart or lung disease or diabetes seem to be at higher risk for developing more severe complications from COVID-19.

Watch for symptoms

People with COVID-19 have had a wide range of symptoms reported – ranging from mild symptoms to severe illness. Symptoms may appear 2-14 days after exposure to the virus. People with these symptoms may have COVID-19:

  • Fever or chills
  • Cough
  • Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
  • Fatigue
  • Muscle or body aches
  • Headache
  • New loss of taste or smell
  • Sore throat
  • Congestion or runny nose

This list does not include all possible symptoms. The CDC will continue to update this list as we learn more about COVID-19.

What counts as close contact?

  • You were within 6 feet of someone who has COVID-19 for a total of 15 minutes or more
  • You provided care at home to someone who is sick with COVID-19
  • You had direct physical contact with the person (hugged or kissed them)
  • You shared eating or drinking utensils
  • They sneezed, coughed, or somehow got respiratory droplets on you

Steps to take

Stay home and monitor your health

M. Stanley Metz & Co., Inc. STAFF and our clients that have scheduled appointments are asked to call out sick or report symptoms on the office phone line: (781) 321-1125.

Stay home for 14 days after your last contact with a person who has COVID-19.

Watch for fever (100.4◦F), cough, shortness of breath, or other symptoms of COVID-19.

If possible, stay away from others, especially people who are at higher risk for getting very sick from COVID-19.
