It's no secret, the past few weeks have been a fearful time for our nation and world. We’ve all been given the protocol: wash your hands for at least 2 minutes with warm water and soap, avoid touching your nose and eyes, and look out for a dry cough. But some facts have been less well spread which we think are important to share!

This week is our chance to make a difference!

  • “This week will contain the highest number of contagious unidentified people and non infected vulnerable people yet”. You have to be thinking 2-3 steps ahead of you. By being strict and serious about your social distancing, you can protect those in at-risk demographics who you pass at the grocery store, the gas station, or even on the street. Make a sacrifice this week to stay home as much as possible to protect the people around you. Even if you are well and not in a vulnerable demographic, it's not about you! It’s about protecting those around us.

A Simple Test

  • Experts in Taiwan have identified an easy self-test to see if you may have the virus. In the morning, take a deep breath and hold it for 10 seconds. If you can do this successfully without coughing, unusual discomfort, stiffness, or tightness: you are not sick. Also, if you have a runny nose, that means it is not the virus.

Tips We Aren’t Talking About- From the Doctors in Chinese Hospitals

  • Everyone should try to keep their throats moist. Try to drink water every 15 minutes because even if the virus gets into your throat, if you wash it down the acid in your stomach will kill the virus.
  • This sickness HATES heat and can be killed by a temperature of just 70-80 degrees.
  • The virus lives longest on METAL surfaces, up to 12 hours. Lysol metal surfaces often and wash your hands more after touching them
  • Gargle with warm salt water at night to contribute to prevention of the virus.
  • Drinking warm liquids is also good for the prevention of COVID19, try not to drink beverages with ice

Social distancing does NOT mean you are not social. It pertains to physical distance. Do not stop supporting each other in this confusing and uncertain time. Keep encouraging others and helping when you can.

Care for those who are elderly in any way you can! They fought for our freedom not too long ago, now it's time for the younger generations to sacrifice for them!
