Steps to Combat COVID-19 

Health Editor’s Note: Yes, Virginia, COVID-19 is real. If you are not practicing the health strategies to avoid contracting and spreading COVID-19, BEGIN NOW! In case you have been living under a rock and have not heard, read, or know what the health strategies are to help to stop the COVID-19 pandemic, here they are with some added by me.

  • Universal face mask use and wear it over both nose and mouth
  • Stay at the least 6 feet or preferably more from any individual you do not live
  • Do not go into groups of any size, indoors or outdoors
  • Stay home unless you are buying food, need medicines, or seeking medical care 
  • DO go outside to exercise but stay physically distanced from anyone you do not live with and do not touch common surfaces such as hand rails, door nobs, handles, etc.
  • Do not leave your home if you are ill.
  • Do not be around anyone who is ill.
  • Do not travel
  • Increase ventilation, especially important in the cold months when we are mostly indoors
  • If you have any symptoms get tested
  • Protect essential workers by wearing a mask and do what you can to not become a coronavirus statistic. Healthcare workers are getting so tired and discouraged.
  • Wash, Wash, Wash your hands all the time with soap and water or use alcohol hand gets when you cannot use soap and water
  • Never touch your face, mouth, nose, or eyes without first thoroughly washing your hands
  • When a COVID-19 vaccine becomes available, GET IT!

It is not hard to understand or know that these will cut the surging of numbers of cases and deaths due to COVID-19…..Carol

  1. Mrs. Carol Duff:
    Maam-
    When I was at AIT we had a “Gas Attack Training” No not CS as in BASIC, but I guess a Troop would call it Bio weapon training now:
    The DI said: ” A virus has a vaccination but a germ warfare agent only has an antidote.”
    Everyone was issued a Gas Mask for the Duration of Their Tour.

    • Sarge, While I do not dispute your comment, COVID-19 is a virus that will be prevented by one of the vaccinations that we will see….hopefully sooner than later. It is our only chance at getting through this pandemic without the further exorbitant loss of life.

  2. Big box stores and stores with high traffic should be venting cold return air to the outside.
    Those with boiler heat, should be venting ambient air to the exterior and maintaining adequate rate of 100% exchange per hour.
