COVID-19, also know as coronavirus is currently spreading across our country and our world. We know this time can be confusing, but it’s important to stay informed. Our team wants you to know exactly what steps we are taking to prevent the spread of this virus. We also want to share with you steps you can take for yourself, your family, and your friends as well.
Protect Yourself and Your Family from COVID-19
The best way to prevent coronavirus is by stopping the spread of it. The Centers for Disease Control and the World Heath Organization recommends practicing six steps to protect yourself, and others, from the coronavirus. First, wash your hands often. Do so with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available, hand sanitizer with 60% alcohol is a good option as well. Second, avoid close contact. COVID-19 spreads person-to-person, so its important to put distance between yourself and other people. Third, stay home if you are sick. Only leave if you are in need of medical care. Fourth, cover all coughs and sneezes. Follow up with washing your hands immediately afterward. Fifth, wear a facemask if you are sick. A facemask is not needed if you are not sick. Sixth, clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces daily. During this time, it is important to keep yourself informed and prepared, rather than scared. We will get through this crisis together.
