COVID-19 Information Guide

With all the craziness going on right now with the Covid-19 virus going around I have collaborated with Sheila Johnson who put together a coronavirus information guide to help others feel more informed about this scary health development. It’s made up of the latest news, facts and myths about coronavirus, and ways you can keep you and your family safe. Here is the information guide:

On December 31, 2019, a case of pneumonia with an unknown cause was reported to the World Health Organization (WHO). Many more of these cases followed, and on January 30, 2020, the outbreak was deemed a Public Health Emergency of International Concern. The name COVID-19 was given to the coronavirus on February 11.

To date, more than 275,000 people worldwide (18,755 in the U.S.) have been infected by COVID-19, and more than 10,000 deaths (237 in the U.S.) have been reported. Now is the time to learn what you can about this coronavirus and take any precautions necessary to keep you, your family, and your community safe during the outbreak.

Keep Up with Official Information

Stay Home When You Can

If Your Family Gets Sick

Take Precautions in Public

While these resources can get you started, it’s important to stay up to date on official information released by organizations like WHO and CDC. Also, stay home when possible, make sure your home stays clean, and take preventative measures when you go in public. Most importantly, if your community — or any areas where you have traveled through recently — has seen a spread of the coronavirus, seek help from a medical professional immediately if you come down with a fever, coughing, or shortness of breath.
