Facts About the Corona Virus
With the recent outbreak of the Corona Virus, I wanted to make available information and resources to answer your questions. Knowledge and education are our best tools to keep ourselves and others healthy. Actions we take to prevent the spread of the flu virus will help to minimize the spread of the Corona Virus as well.
The Center for Disease Control offers steps individuals and communities can take to help minimize the risk of COVID-19 spread. Practice everyday preventive actions such as:
- Performing frequent hand hygiene using hand sanitizer; or if visibly soiled, washing hands with soap and water,
- Covering your cough and sneezes,
- Avoiding ill people,
- Staying home when sick (except to seek medical care).
Everyone can do their part to reduce spread of rumors. Let people know that viruses cannot target people from specific populations, ethnicities, or racial backgrounds. Being of Asian descent does not increase the chance of getting or spreading COVID-19.
Please feel free to contact me if I can be of assistance.
