Hope this helps

There is a lot of information out there about the Coronavirus. The news is saturated with stories and reports. It has caused and will continue to, for a while, to impact all of our lives directly or indirectly.


I wanted to take this opportunity to do a public service announcement and provide suggestions from the Center for Disease Control for combating the Coronavirus-

1. Clean your hands often

Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds especially after you have been in a public place, or after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing. If soap and water are not readily available, use a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol. Cover all surfaces of your hands and rub them together until they feel dry. Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.

2. Avoid close contact

Avoid close contact with people who are sick Put distance between yourself and other people if COVID-19 is spreading in your community.


3. Stay home if you are sick

Stay home if you are sick, except to go to the doctor

4. Cover coughs and sneezes

Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when you cough or sneeze or use the inside of your elbow. Throw used tissues in the trash. Immediately wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not readily available, clean your hands with a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol.

5. Wear a facemask if you are sick

If you are sick: You should wear a facemask when you are around other people (e.g., sharing a room or vehicle) and before you enter a healthcare provider’s office. If you are not able to wear a facemask (for example, because it causes trouble breathing), then you should do your best to cover your coughs and sneezes, and people who are caring for you should wear a facemask if they enter your room.

If you are NOT sick: You do not need to wear a facemask unless you are caring for someone who is sick (and they are not able to wear a facemask). Facemasks may be in short supply and they should be saved for caregivers.

6. Clean and disinfect

Clean AND disinfect frequently touched surfaces daily. This includes tables, doorknobs, light switches, countertops, handles, desks, phones, keyboards, toilets, faucets, and sinks.

If surfaces are dirty, clean them: Use detergent or soap and water prior to disinfection.

For more go to the Center for Disease Control at CDC.gov

Look forward to sharing again with you on Friday again.


A thought to ponder,
