Stay Healthy During These Trying Times
The health and safety of our patients and staff is of the utmost importance to the executives at Advanced Weight Loss. Our offices are, and always have been, properly sanitized and disinfected to ensure the health of everyone who walks through our doors, and to further ensure that health, we closely follow the updates and advice given by the World Health Organization (WHO) and Centers for Disease Control (CDC).
Whether you are working from home or not, there are a few very manageable things you can do to keep yourself, and others, healthy and safe. Follow these pieces of advice to help curb the spread of COVID-19.
Regularly wash your hands
Use soap and water to thoroughly clean your hands (knuckles, in between fingers, and backs of hands too!) for a minimum of 20 seconds to kill lingering germs and viruses. Soap and water is the best alternative, but if you cannot wash your hands for one reason or another, use alcohol-based hand sanitizers.
Practice social distancing
If you must be around others, keep three feet (some sources suggest six) between yourself and others when possible. When someone coughs or sneezes, this helps you avoid breathing in the droplets sprayed that could contain the virus.
Avoid touching your face
We touch a wide variety of surfaces that could be holding a virus. When you touch your face, you could transfer the virus to your eyes, nose, and mouth, which would then enter your system and make you sick. Avoiding touching your face (and make sure you wash your hands!) will help.
Practice proper respiratory hygiene
You’ve been told this since you were a child– make sure you cover your mouth and nose when you cough or sneeze. Make sure you use a tissue or your inner elbow to avoid spreading germs. Remind others to do the same to keep yourself and others safe from viruses.
If you have cough, fever, and difficulty breathing, seek medical attention early
It is always suggested that you stay home if you feel ill, but if you have a cough, fever, and difficulty breathing together, seek medical attention as soon as possible. National and local medical authorities have the most up-to-date information on the virus, but make sure you call ahead to keep others safe if you may potentially carry the virus.
So stay healthy, stay safe, and with all illnesses, stay hydrated!
