InXite Takes Covid-19 Very Seriously

Coronavirus—what you need to know

The coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic is causing increasing concern worldwide. InXite Health Systems is carefully monitoring this situation to provide our clients, patients and employees with the most up-to-date information as it becomes available. Leading researchers from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) provide the most current information on this disease, including announcements from the White House.

Here are some precautions to take:

• Stay home when you are sick (espe­cial­ly if you are expe­ri­enc­ing res­pi­ra­to­ry symp­toms such as fever, cough, short­ness of breath, sore throat, run­ny or stuffy nose, body aches, headaches, chills or fatigue).
• Wash your hands fre­quent­ly with warm, soapy water for at least 20 sec­onds.
• Cov­er your mouth with tis­sues when­ev­er you sneeze, and dis­card used tis­sues in the trash.
• Avoid peo­ple who are sick with res­pi­ra­to­ry symp­toms.
• Clean fre­quent­ly touched sur­faces.

Here are the President’s coronavirus guidelines for America:

DO YOUR PART TO SLOW THE SPREAD OF THE CORONAVIRUS
