Protecting Yourself

Although we are still in the midst of the flu season, it is now known that the Coronavirus, otherwise known as Covid-19 has arrived in the United States.  The Coronavirus and influenza have very similar symptoms.  These can include low-grade fever, dry coughing, and shortness of breath.  As with any respiratory virus, we recommend the following:  

  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick. 
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands. 
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol based hand sanitizer. 
  • Stay home when you are sick. 
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash. 
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces. 

A fact sheet on the Coronavirus is also attached for your reference.
