Coronavirus Tips and Resources in Miami
If you’re feeling the anxiety of the coronavirus outbreak, you’re not alone. The situation is evolving rapidly, with new statistics and guidelines every day. The good news is, Miami and the surrounding cities have always been strong. We will get through this as a community. But we must take the threat of COVID-19 very seriously.
Despite certain claims, coronavirus is not “basically the same as the flu.” The virus is spreading quickly. And while most cases are mild, a COVID-19 infection can be serious and even deadly for vulnerable populations such as the elderly and those with certain medical conditions. Those who are less vulnerable must be vigilant in protecting neighbors who are at an increased risk of severe infection.
For this reason, the Centers for Disease Control recommends social distancing whenever possible. Avoid air travel and cruise vacations for the time being. Work from home and conduct meetings through video conferencing. Stay away from large crowds and do not shake hands with anyone.
Review the signs of coronavirus. Symptoms such as coughing, shortness of breath, and fever could signal a COVID-19 infection. However, please note that the presence of these symptoms is not a cause for panic. Call your doctor for medical advice. If you are asked to stay home, do not leave your house until you have fully recovered. Seek immediate medical attention if you experience emergency warning signs such as bluish lips or face, inability to breathe, confusion, inability to arouse, or pain or pressure in the chest.
Maintain a sanitized home. If you run a commercial property such as a retail store, supermarket, or any other high-traffic facility, you must be especially relentless about disinfecting your space for the sake of public health. Consider calling a professional sanitization company such as 911 Restoration, Inc. to deep clean your business.
