This Is Our Storm
Unfortunately, these times are comparable to a storm disaster, but this is a storm the entire world is experiencing at once. This deadly pandemic has reminded us that hurricanes or other storms all have a common element that can ultimately help guide us in how to respond to the chaos around our life. Like our city leaders and other officials, they prepare for the upcoming hurricane season, and have taken guidance and noticed what other hard-hit cities are doing to prepare for possible cases of the virus. COVID-19 is like a storm disrupting our way of living. However, that doesn’t mean we can’t be prepared. According to cdc.gov here are some helpful tips below.
- There is currently no vaccine to prevent coronavirus disease in 2019.
- The best way to prevent illness is to avoid being exposed to this virus.
- The virus is thought to spread mainly from person-to-person.
- Between people who are in close contact with one another (within about 6 feet).
- Through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs, sneezes or talks.
- These droplets can land in the mouths or noses of people who are nearby or possibly be inhaled into the lungs.
- Some recent studies have suggested the COVID-19 may be spread by people who are not showing symptoms.
- Consider whether you can work from home
- Wash hands for at least 20 seconds
- Stay home if you’re sick
- Cover coughs and sneezes
- Wear a facemask if you are sick
- Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces
