Coronavirus: What to do?!

Coronavirus is all over the news. Naturally, many of our members are worried—and the Sollis Health team is here to help, 24/7, with any questions or concerns. Our staff is monitoring the situation closely, working with the local department of public health and taking guidance from the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO.)

This is a fast-evolving situation, but for now—don’t panic! The risk in New York remains very low. If you do have symptoms that concern you, please call us and/or your primary care doctor before walking in. The same goes if you have been traveling, or if you think you may have come into contact with COVID-19 locally: Call first.

Sollis Health is also here to help if you have travels planned. As The New York Times reported, Sollis staff is on-hand to assist members in preparing for the safest journeys possible. If you are interested in a Sollis Health membership, please inquire for more information here.

Fretting about coronavirus won’t slow its spread. Here’s what will: Taking simple precautions in order to protect yourself and your family and minimize the spread of germs.

The COVID-19 to-do list:

  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially before eating and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
    • If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol. 
  • Stay home when you are sick.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe.
  • Know the facts about face masks.
    • People who are well gain very little benefit from wearing a face mask to protect themselves from respiratory diseases, including COVID-19.
    • People who show symptoms of COVID-19 should use face masks to help prevent the spread of the disease to others. 
    • The appropriate use of “N95” face masks is crucial for health workers and caregivers (at home or in a healthcare facility) caring for ill patients.

Finally, you can keep yourself informed about the latest developments regarding COVID-19 by visiting the New York State Department of Health website.
