At the bottom of this article is a free printable info sheet for your office, please print it and post. Also bookmark this blog article, at the bottom are links to government pages that are constantly updating.
Currently, the threat is low in the United States, but not a lot is known about this virus. Our government is limiting entry to our country and actively trying to contain the spread of the virus. Since it is also the season for flus and other viruses, taking precautions is still a good idea all around.
Please promote good and healthy habits to your friends, family, and coworkers:
•If you are congested, coughing, or feeling under the weather, please stay home! You could unintentionally be infecting those around you and your immune system is low so you are more susceptible to catching other things
•Wash your hands
•Avoid touching your face - eyes, nose, mouth
•Wear a surgical mask when in crowded areas
•Avoid contact with unknown animals - animals are spreading the coronavirus too!
•Stay away from people who are sick
•Eat healthy and stay active
•Wash fruits and vegetables before eating them, dunking them in a mixture of water and apple cider vinegar is even better.
•If you are sick, seek medical attention
•Get your flu shot!
If you are a teacher, coach, or manager - if you see kids or employees who are sick, please send them home. Offer work from home options or independent study. No soccer game, meeting, or test is worth getting everyone else sick! Also print out and post the coronavirus infosheet and put it where coworkers, students, and teammates can see it.
