WHAT YOU SHOULD DO/ KNOW

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:

15 DAYS TO SLOW THE SPREAD

• Lis­ten to and fol­low the direc­tions of your STATE AND LOCAL AUTHORITIES
IF YOU FEEL SICK, stay home. Do not go to work. Con­tact your med­ical provider.
IF YOUR CHILDREN ARE SICK, keep them at home. Do not send them to school. Con­tact your med­ical provider.
IF SOMEONE IN YOUR HOUSEHOLD HAS TESTED POSITIVE for the coro­n­avirus, keep
the entire house­hold at home. Do not go to work. Do not go to school. Con­tact your med­ical provider.
IF YOU ARE AN OLDER PERSON, stay home and away from oth­er peo­ple.
IF YOU ARE A PERSON WITH A SERIOUS UNDERLYING HEALTH CONDITION that can put you at increased risk (for exam­ple, a con­di­tion that impairs your lung or heart func­tion or weak­ens your immune sys­tem), stay home and away from oth­er peo­ple.

DO YOUR PART TO SLOW THE SPREAD OF THE CORONAVIRUS

Even if you are young, or otherwise healthy, you are at risk and your activities can increase the risk for others. It is critical that you do your part to slow the spread of the coronavirus.

• Work or engage in school­ing from home when­ev­er pos­si­ble.
IF YOU WORK IN A CRITICAL INFRASTRUCTURE INDUSTRY, as defined by the Depart­ment of Home­land Secu­ri­ty, such as health­care ser­vices and phar­ma­ceu­ti­cal and food sup­ply, you have a spe­cial respon­si­bil­i­ty to main­tain your nor­mal work sched­ule. You and your employ­ees should fol­low CDC guid­ance to pro­tect your health a work.• AVOID SOCIAL GATHERINGS in groups of more than 10 peo­ple.
• Avoid eat­ing or drink­ing at bars, restau­rants and food courts—USE DRIVE-THRU, PICKUP OR DELIVERY OPTIONS.
AVOID DISCRETIONARY TRAVEL, shop­ping trips and social vis­its.
DO NOT VISIT nurs­ing homes or retire­ment or long-term care facil­i­ties unless to pro­vide crit­i­cal assis­tance.
PRACTICE GOOD HYGIENE:

o Wash your hands, espe­cial­ly after touch­ing any fre­quent­ly used item or sur­face.
o Avoid touch­ing your face.
o Sneeze or cough into a tis­sue or the inside of your elbow.
o Dis­in­fect fre­quent­ly used items and sur­faces as much as pos­si­ble.
