A letter from our CEO:
What can patients do to protect themselves?
The best way to protect yourself from COVID-19 is to use the same everyday strategies recommended to prevent the spread of similar illnesses like the common cold or the flu:
1. Wash your hands frequently and thoroughly
2. Wear a mask when outside the home, and during any interaction with healthcare professionals
3. Stay home if you are sick.
4. Practice social distancing
5. Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue and immediately throw it away. If a tissue is unavailable, use your bent elbow.
7. Avoid touching your face.
8. Clean frequently touched surfaces in your home with a household disinfectant
What is the proper technique for hand washing?
1. Wet hands with clean running water (hot or cold), turn off tap and apply soap.
2. Lather hands by rubbing together with soap. Lather the backs of hands, between fingers, and under nails.
3. Scrub for at least 20 seconds. How do you know you are done? Sing Happy Birthday two times through.
4. Turn on water using forearm or elbow
5. Rinse hands well.
6. Turn off tap with forearm or elbow to avoid recontamination
7. Dry hands using a clean towel or air-dry.
Note: If soap and water are not readily available, alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol may be used.
