Question: What can I do to help protect the health and safety of myself and others?

Answer: Stay home as much as possible.

The CDC states that “the best way to prevent illness is to avoid being exposed to this virus.” It further states that “the virus is thought to spread mainly from person-to-person” between “people who are in close contact with one another.” Therefore, for the safety of yourself and others, consider keeping physically separate from those not living inside your home to the degree possible, limiting any activity outside your home to only essential matters that affect the life of you or those in your household. The CDC also recommends that you “clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces daily.”

Question: If I must go out in public, what specific precautions can I take?

Answer: Maintain social distancing and clean your hands frequently.

Limiting the frequency of going out in public is the best option. However, when doing so is necessary, the CDC recommends putting “distance between yourself and other people.” Social distancing involves maintaining at least 6 feet of separation between you and those not living in your home with you, including when standing in lines. In addition, be conscious of touch surfaces and avoid touching your face. The CDC further recommends cleaning your hands often. Frequently wash your hands with soap and warm water for at least 20 seconds. Alcohol-based hand sanitizer may be used in addition to hand washing or if soap and water are not readily available.

Question: Should I wear a face mask? If so, what type should be used?

Answer: A face covering is recommended in public settings.

The CDC recommends “wearing cloth face coverings in public settings where other social distancing measures are difficult to maintain (e.g., grocery stores and pharmacies) especially in areas of significant community-based transmission,” and further states that "Cloth face coverings fashioned from household items or made at home from common materials at low

         

cost can be used as an additional, voluntary public health measure." The CDC also suggests that during this time of shortage “surgical masks or N-95 respirators be reserved for healthcare workers and other medical first responders.”

PS: please,reply if I can share a scripture thought.    As to what the ancient proverb gives us encouragement to life's anxieties.
