PokeWestHills encourages trainers to stay safe if they are choosing to play outside during the Coronavirus outbreak. Avoiding large groups, staying in their cars, cleaning phone surfaces, and using precautions when interacting with others is encouraged.
Due to new LA County restrictions on gatherings of 10 or more people, trainers are encouraged to stay in their cars and wear face coverings in public.
We encourage you to avoid raiding if possible, or do so in small groups with proper sanitation measures in place.
Remember that the community in general is more important than raiding and shiny hunting.
The best way to prevent illness is to avoid being exposed to this virus. The virus is thought to spread mainly from person-to-person. Between people who are in close contact with one another (within about 6 feet).
Through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes. These droplets can land in the mouths or noses of people who are nearby or possibly be inhaled into the lungs.
