NEW INFORMATION & UPDATES

 

Coronavirus (COVID-19)

The 2019 Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) is a new respiratory virus that affects the respiratory system, including the lungs and airways. People of all ages are susceptible to COVID-19, but older people and those with pre-existing conditions (high blood pressure, heart problems, and diabetes) appear to be more vulnerable and experience more severe illness. Although the outbreak is incredibly fast-moving and will continue to spread, using precautions and staying informed can help protect our communities and families.

 

Keeping Yourself & Your Family Safe

You can help prevent the spread of all airborne illnesses, including COVID-19, by practicing basic health precautions including:

  • Staying home when sick, and staying home for 24 hours following a fever without the use of fever-reducing medications
  • Washing hands for 20 seconds or using hand sanitizer
  • Covering your mouth with a tissue or your upper sleeve when you cough or sneeze
  • Avoiding touching your eyes, nose, and mouth
  • Disinfecting all frequently touched surfaces at home, and ensuring your workplace and community gathering spaces are taking necessary steps to disinfect common surfaces.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends wearing cloth face coverings in public settings where other social distancing measures are difficult to maintain, especially in areas with significant community spread.

 

Dealing with Uncertainty

This pandemic has called upon each of us to change our lifestyle in drastic and unexpected ways. If you or a loved one is anxious, depressed or suicidal, there is help.
