Maintaining Health & Safety During Coronavirus

As we still navigate through uncertain times, it is expected to feel a sense of worry and anxiety. Let’s transition efficiently to ensure we all stay safe and healthy.

Take care of yourself mentally and physically. Take time to eat well, exercise, reach out to a friend or family member for support and seek help if you need to.

Respect others. Again, this pandemic has been a new experience for all of us and it’s okay for people to feel differently about the state being open. Allow everyone to move at their own pace.

Keep the cleaning and sanitizing habits you developed during quarantine. Continue to wash your hands for 20 seconds, sanitize your hands after going to the store, do not touch your face and always sneeze and cough into your elbow. These are helpful habits to have to protect yourself from COVID-19 as well as other illnesses such as the flu.

Continue to practice physical distancing while in public. Eventually we won’t need to enforce a 6-foot rule but maintaining a smaller personal space “bubble” will slow the spread of germs when it comes to cold and flu season.

Take your time. There is no right or wrong way to feel about everything that has happened. If you feel that you and your family are at high risk of contracting or spreading the virus, then continue to spend the majority of your time at home and wait a few weeks before returning to the gym or dining-in at restaurants.
