The well-being of VVC patients, staff and the larger community are of utmost importance. VVC is following the Florida Department of Heath for updates regarding the latest coronavirus, Covid-19.
The strongest recommendations are below:
Protect yourself and your community from coronavirus COVID-19. Wash your hands frequently with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom, before eating, and after blowing your nose, coughing or sneezing. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol.
Public health experts advise staying calm and following the same precautions recommended for preventing flu or any other respiratory virus. Right now the odds are far greater that your cold or fever is caused by influenza or another respiratory disease, says Gregory Poland, director of the Mayo Clinic’s Vaccine Research Group in Rochester, Minn.
