A Few Health Reminders During COVID-19 (sent to the Bradley family on 03/21/2020)
We wanted to take a moment to say thank you to the Bradley family for your patience and support during this trying time. We encourage you to continue staying calm and doing your best to remain safe and healthy.
We want to remind you the coronavirus isn’t the only virus circulating at this time. There are many others, including high incidences of the flu, the common cold and RSV. Just because someone is sick doesn’t mean they have COVID-19. Familiarize yourself with the symptoms for each and when it’s appropriate to seek medical attention.
We’ve heard questions about a student being transported to the hospital last night from campus. This was NOT a case of COVID-19 but another illness.
Out of an abundance of caution, emergency personnel are taking more precautions when responding to calls. They may be wearing masks, gowns, and gloves and may ask the patient to do the same, even if they haven’t done so in the past. That doesn’t mean it is automatically a COVID-19 case, these are now necessary precautions.
Stay home if you feel ill (for states not on a stay-in-place order)
Practice social distancing
Clean and disinfect your home and belongings
