From the CDC about COVID-19. https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-nCoV/index.html


1- Diseases can make anyone sick regardless of race, ethnicity, or age.
2- For MOST people the immediate risk of becoming seriously ill from COVID-19 is thought to be low.
3- Someone who has been released from isolation or has completed quarantine is not at risk of infecting others.
4- WAYS TO KEEP HEALTHY:
WASH HANDS often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
DO NOT touch your eyes, nose, or mouth with unwashed hands.
STAY HOME if sick or not feeling well.
COVER COUGH into shirt sleeve or into a tissue and then dispose of properly. (WASH hands again.)
Wear a face covering: but please make sure that the covering fits and that you are wearing it properly. (Over nose and mouth)
Keep a safe social distance (6 feet is recommended).

Now some common sense facts to keep us healthy even if there wasn’t COVID-19:
1. Get plenty of sleep at night (6-8 hours for adults and 8-10 hours for children)
2. Eat healthy foods that are vitamin rich. (FRUITS AND VEGGIES!)
3. Get exercise. (Walking counts!)
4. Practice excellent oral hygiene. (Brush twice daily and floss!)https://www.news-medical.net/news/20200630/Oral-hygiene-and-severity-of-COVID-19-e28093-the-connection.aspx
These few things daily will help you, not only physically but mentally! And we all know we need some mental health through these trying times!
