Chesterbrook Precinct: Polling place takes swine flu precautions
There's not one person in the entire Vinson Hall Retirement Community who has the flu right now, according to officials here. And they want to keep it that way.
At the entrance to the Chesterbrook Precinct in McLean, workers at the assisted care facility on the ground here have set out an oak table with a box full of masks for people to wear if they have flu-like symptoms.
Also on the table is a big bottle of Purell hand sanitizer, two signs that advise people to cough carefully and a framed photograph of stuffed animals wearing masks.
"We know everyone's nervous about flu so we want folks to feel safe so they can leverage their right to vote without fear of catching the flu," said Donna J. Duss, the director of health care services for the expansive retirement community.
