OTHER HELPFUL INFORMATION (from the cdc.gov)
There is currently no vaccine to prevent coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). The best way to prevent illness is to avoid being exposed to this virus. The virus is thought to spread mainly from person-to-person. * Between people who are in close contact with one another (within about 6 feet). * Through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes. These droplets can land in the mouths or noses of people who are nearby or possibly be inhaled into the lungs. Older adults and people who have severe underlying chronic medical conditions like heart or lung disease or diabetes seem to be at higher risk for developing more serious complications from COVID-19 illness. Please consult with your health care provider about additional steps you may be able to take to protect yourself.
We encourage everyone to take certain steps to protect themselves and others from the coronavirus, flu, and other illnesses, including:
Washing your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds
Use hand sanitizer (contains at least 60% alcohol) when soap and water is not available
Do not touch your eyes, nose, or mouth with unwashed hands
Avoiding close contact with people who are sick
Stay home if you or someone in your family is sick (fever, above symptoms noted, etc.)
Covering your cough or sneeze (into your elbow or a tissue - and dispose of the tissue in a trash can)
Disinfect objects and surfaces regularly
Use common sense
The coronavirus is yet one more reminder that we live in a fallen world of sickness, sin, suffering, and death. Ultimately, none of us are immune to any of these things. But that’s why the gospel is such good news. God has not left us alone in this world of sickness, sin, suffering, and death. He has come to us in the person of Jesus. The greatest news in all the world is that Jesus lived a life with no sin, died on a cross to pay the price for our sin, and rose from the grave in victory over sin and death. Now anyone anywhere who turns from their sin and trusts in Jesus will be forgiven of all their sin and restored to relationship with God forever. That means that through Jesus, we never have to fear sickness or death because we know we have eternal life with God. (From Parkway Baptist Church website)
