Temporary Precautions That Will Be In Place To Keep All Of Us
As Safe As Possible.

2. Cough that comes from low in the chest
3. Difficulty in breathing
Procedure in the event of one or more of the above symptoms: DO NOT GO To Your Doctor or Hospital CALL Your Doctor or Hospital
*They will have a trained professional return your call and
ask you a number of questions.
**In the event that it is decided that you have or may have the virus,
They will send someone to take you to a treatment center.
Procedure for AVOIDING Covid-19 Virus:
WASH YOUR HANDS FREQUENTLY:
Use Soap. It is necessary to use a disinfectant. Scrub your hands for
20 seconds (sing or think twice the Happy Birthday song). Pay attention to your thumbs, under your finger nails and in the creases of your hands.
Keep your hands away from your face.
When you sneeze or cough, do so into your arm in the elbow area,
not into your hands (this just goes into the air).
It is not necessary to wear a mask if you do not have the infection.
The mask is capable of preventing the infection to another person,
but is not capable of preventing you from the infection.
