✳BE AWARE THAT NOT ALL COVID TESTING IS ACCURATE. STAY ALERT FOR ANY SIGNS OF ILLNESS IN YOU AND THOSE AROUND YOU.✅
OVER THE PAST FEW WEEKS THERE HAS BEEN A SHARP INCREASE IN THE NUMBER OF COVID-19 CASES DIAGNOSED LOCALLY. MOST POSITIVE PATIENTS WE HAVE SEEN WORK IN LARGE GROUPS OF PEOPLE OR HAVE BEEN IN HEALTH CARE SETTINGS. THE SYMPTOMS SEEM TO BE LIKE A MILD VIRAL INFECTION, BUT SOME PATIENTS HAVE HAD HIGH FEVERS AND ONE HAD A PNEUMONIA.
AT THIS POINT IT SEEMS THAT MOST PATIENTS ARE NOT HAVING SEVERE SYMPTOMS. HOWEVER, THE OLDER PATIENTS DO APPEAR TO HAVE SYMPTOMS THAT ARE OF GREATER CONCERN. IF YOU WORK IN AN AREA WITH MANY WORKERS, OR IN HEALTH CARE, YOU MUST ASSUME THAT YOUR CHANCES OF BEING EXPOSED ARE GREATER AND SHOULD TAKE EXTRA PRECAUTIONS TO AVOID CONTACT WITH ANOTHER PERSON WHO MIGHT BE INFECTED.
DATA SEEMS TO SUGGEST THAT MANY PEOPLE WILL NOT BECOME VERY ILL. UNFORTUNATELY, THOSE PEOPLE WHO ARE MOST SUSCEPTIBLE CAN EXPERIENCE VERY SEVERE DISEASE SYMPTOMS AND POSSIBLY DIE. THEREFORE, WE MUST ALL USE PPE MEASURES SUCH AS MASKS AND SOCIAL DISTANCING. CLOSE UP CONTACT SEEMS TO BE HOW COVID-19 IS MOST EASILY SPREAD.
IF YOU HAVE SYMPTOMS SUCH AS FEVER, COUGH, SORE THROAT, CHILLS, OR DIARRHEA, YOU MUST ASSUME THAT YOU HAVE COVID-19. IF YOU DO HAVE SYMPTOMS, YOU MUST BE VERY CAREFUL NOT TO EXPOSE YOURSELF TO OTHERS - ESPECIALLY PEOPLE WITH RISK FACTORS SUCH AS THOSE OVER 60 YEARS OLD, NURSING HOME PATIENTS AND ANYONE WITH A CHRONIC MEDICAL CONDITIION.
IF YOU FEEL YOU MUST HAVE A COVID-19 TEST, CALL YOUR HEALTH CARE PROVIDER AND SEE IF THEY TEST FOR THE VIRUS. MAKE SURE YOU TELL YOUR PROVIDER IF YOU ARE HAVING SYMPTOMS.
WE ARE GOING TO GET THROUGH THIS! IF WE USE PPE SUCH AS MASKS AND WE PRACTICE SOCIAL DISTANCING, WE CAN SIGNIFICANTLY SLOW DOWN THE SPREAD OF COVID-19. LET'S GET IT DONE.
