Coronavirus - Another ConsiderationPosted: March 17, 2020, 8:20AM
As we are all focused on social distancing, avoiding contracting the virus, and keeping our family and friends safe, there is another consideration and that is being extra careful in other areas of our lives.
This is not a time to have to seek emergency medical attention for accidents and issues we can possibly avoid.
Be extra careful to avoid falls. You don't want to have to go to the emergency department with a broken leg.
Drive carefully. Be patient. You don't want to have to go to the emergency department due to a car accident.
If in doubt, throw it out. If you think a food is not safe, don't eat it. You don't want to have to go to the emergency deparment due to food poisoning.
Are you seeing a trend? We want to avoid trips to the emergency department or our doc's office if we can.
There are illnesses and accidents that we cannot avoid, but we can exercise extra caution to stay as safe and healthy as possible.
Stay safe. Be well. WASH YOUR HANDS!
