We hope you and your loved ones are doing well in this time of uncertainty. Our hearts and prayers are with you as we all continue to deal with COVID-19 and the global impact of this pandemic.
We are committed to being a light during the dark moments and a source of information and inspiration for our community (online and off). There are many opportunities to find peace, clarity, and hope in this particular moment.
We are working on new content to keep you engaged and prepared for working online as it relates to your business. You may find that you have more time than ever before to focus on growing your skillset!
But for right now, I’m sure we can all agree that our safety is the number one priority. Here are some recommendations from the Red Cross to help prevent the spread of germs during this situation.
- Stay home if you can and avoid gatherings of more than ten people.
- Practice social distancing by keeping a distance of about six feet from others if you must go out in public.
- Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after being in a public place, or after blowing your nose, coughing or sneezing. If soap and water are not readily available, use a hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth with unwashed hands.
- Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
- Stay home if you are sick, except to get medical care.
- Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when coughing or sneezing; throw used tissues in the trash. If a tissue isn’t available, cough or sneeze into your elbow or sleeve, not your hands.
- Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces daily. This includes tables, doorknobs, light switches, handles, desks, computers, phones, keyboards, sinks, toilets, faucets and countertops.
- If surfaces are dirty, clean them – use detergent or soap and water prior to disinfection.
- Wear a facemask if you are sick. You should wear a facemask when you are around other people (e.g., sharing a room or vehicle) and before you enter a healthcare provider’s office.
According to the CDC, COVID-19 symptoms include fever, shortness of breath and a cough. Symptoms may appear 2-14 days after exposure. Call your doctor for medical advice if you think you have been exposed to COVID-19 and develop symptoms.
Take care of yourself and those around you!
