COVID – 19

Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19)

Currently, there is no vaccine to prevent the Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). However, if you have a planned travel trip and not sure if you should go ahead – here is a short quiz to check if it may still be a “go”!
Your vacation may still be a go! If your answer matches the response in additions to each question, move on to the next question. If not, you may need to reconsider your travel plans.

  • Are the travellers healthy? (Yes)
  • Have the travellers received flu shots? (Yes)
  • Do any of the travellers or anyone the travellers have had contact with have any underlying high-risk conditions for the virus, such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease? (No)
  • Are any travel restrictions for your destination listed on the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention or US Department of State websites? (No)
  • Is the trip a cruise (which Wootton advises against)? (No)
  • Are there any major events after the trip that would cause problems if you and your fellow travellers were quarantined for a period of time? (No)
  • Would anxiety during travel ruin the trip for you? (No)
  • Are you reasonably able to take common preventative measures – such as washing hands and keeping hands away from the face – during travel? (Yes)
  • Would your regret be manageable if you or a family member caught Covid-19? (Yes)

If you’ve positively made your way to the end of the checklist, your planned vacation may still go ahead!

Here are a few precautions:

Frequently wash your hands
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds especially after you have been in a public place, or after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
  • If soap and water are not freely available, use a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol. Cover all surfaces of your hands and rub them together until they feel dry.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
Avoid close contact
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick
  • Put distance between yourself and other people if COVID-19 is spreading in your community.
Steps to protect others
  • Stay home if you are sick, except to get medical care.
  • Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when you cough or sneeze or use the inside of your elbow.
    Throw used tissues in the bin.
  • Immediately wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not readily available, clean your hands with a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol.
Wearing a mask
  • 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. If you are not able to wear a facemask (for example, because it causes trouble breathing), then you should do your best to cover your coughs and sneezes, and people who are caring for you should wear a facemask if they enter your room.
  • If you are NOT sick: You do not need to wear a facemask unless you are caring for someone who is sick (and they are not able to wear a facemask). Facemasks may be in short supply and they should be saved for caregivers.

  1. Sweet blog! I came across it while surfing around on Yahoo News.
    Do you have any suggestions on how to get indexed in Yahoo News?
    I’ve been trying for quite a while but I never seem to arrive!

    Cheers

  2. I wanted to thank you for this good read!! I certainly enjoyed every bit of it. I have got you saved as a favorite to look at new things you post…

  3. Oh my goodness! Amazing article dude! Thank you, However I am going through problems with your RSS. I don’t know the reason why I cannot join it. Is there anybody having similar RSS issues? Anyone that knows the solution can you kindly respond? Thanks!!

  4. Another concern to keep in mind regarding this rule is that you simply shouldn’t wait following the grass has attained a one-third
    mow off its length. Just make sure it can be encompassed by
    a wall with a minimum of 4″ or surround it with at least 9″ of paving slabs or even the cable.
    Overall, Bermuda is often a really good grass in case you need a fantastic
    looking lawn without the problem of grass that you will need to water each day,
    aerate every year, and seed annually.

  5. I was curious if you ever considered changing the structure of your website?
    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.

    But maybe you could a little more in the way of
    content so people could connect with it better.
    Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or two
    pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?
