Corono Virus Update:

Please remember to continue to use common sense measures while this virus and the Flu season continue. Wash your hands often, use hand sanitizers when you can’t wash hands, cover your nose and mouth when coughing or sneezing, if you feel sick or show symptoms stay home and isolate yourself, Use tissues to blow nose and place in a bag and then put that bag in the general garbage. Drink plenty of fluids and eat healthy. Just using these common sense measures can help prevent the spread of germs. One thing not to do is believe everything you hear. With the internet and social media so available today a lot of false rumors are appearing. For example, Garlic is a healthy food with some antimicrobial properties, but it will not prevent the virus. Getting the Flu or Pneumonia shot will not prevent getting the virus and yet these have been on social media this week.  Just use common sense and don’t believe everything you read or hear. Two good sources to check for actual facts and information are the CDC and WHO websites.
