For many months, COVID-19 has been all over the news. Everywhere we have turned, we’ve heard something about it.
But with as much coverage as the virus has gotten, do you really have a good understanding of what it is and how you can protect your family? Probably not, if you’re like most Americans. That’s why our team at AFC Urgent Care of South Charlotte, NC wants to take a few minutes to share some insight.
While the number of cases being diagnosed each day has leveled out some at the time of this writing, COVID-19 is still a very real and present danger. As of June 1, 2020, more than 1.5 million Americans had been diagnosed.
Because there is no single recognized treatment for COVID-19 and no vaccine yet available, it’s still important to take precautions to protect yourself and your family. Knowing the symptoms of the condition is a good place to begin.
Symptoms of COVID-19
What Can I Do to Protect My Family?
The best thing you can for you and your family is to continue to limit the time you’re spending outside your home. While the “stay at home” order has been lifted, it’s still best practice to avoid large gatherings and close contact with others.
The CDC also recommends some other essential protections—stay six feet away from others when you are outside the home, wear a cloth mask when in public if age 2 or older, wash your hands regularly and thoroughly, and disinfect commonly touched surfaces often.
Steps for Proper Handwashing
