How Philly Can Stay Safe During the Coronavirus
The coronavirus has vastly impacted all of the United States, including Philadelphia. As local businesses across the city are shutting down, more and more people are out of work and hunkering down in their homes to flatten the curve and reduce the spread of this deadly disease.
During this important time, it is critical to stay calm and practice social distancing. This means staying at home as much as possible, only going out when necessary, like to the grocery store or pharmacy, wearing a mask and gloves when you venture out, and maintaining a six-foot distance between yourself and others. Wash your hands thoroughly with warm soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after sneezing or coughing, before eating, and after using the restroom.
It is also important to educate yourself on the signs and symptoms of the coronavirus. If you feel like you have the flu, or any of the following symptoms, seek medical attention immediately. The coronavirus can present itself as:
- Dry coughing
- Muscle cramps or pain
- Trouble breathing
If you or a loved one is experiencing the following symptoms, you must get medical help immediately:
- Shortness of breath or breathing difficulties
- Pressure or pain in the chest
- Bluish lips or face
If you have been diagnosed with the coronavirus, do not panic. Practice self isolation by staying in a different part of your home, apart from your family. Use a separate bathroom, if possible. Also, clean touched surfaces and objects, such as doorknobs and countertops, with warm water and a household cleaning agent throughout the day.
