With so much information available today, we wanted to share important news regarding your health and wellness in a simple, snapshot format. Here is the latest:
FDA Authorizes Covid-19 Tests For People Without Symptoms
Covid-19 tests have been difficult to come by, with most made available to those that are exhibiting symptoms. Last week, the FDA authorized tests for those without symptoms. Tests will be available at a wide variety of locations, although there may be a delay in obtaining a test as those with symptoms and at higher risk will receive priority scheduling. Read more about the details of the new authorization here.
CDC Recommends Face Coverings While In Public
Late last week, the Centers For Disease Control recommended that people use face coverings while in public settings. This is in an effort to stop the spread of COVID-19 by those that are ill or asymptomatic. Please follow these guidelines for how to effectively use a face covering; the recommendations specify disposable masks, but if you opt for a cloth covering, the best precaution is to wash the covering after use, and to avoid touching the covering (along with maintaining hand hygiene and frequent cleaning of high traffic areas).
If you would like to purchase handmade cloth masks, Courtney Medical Group has them available for sale for $8 each. Adult sizes; children’s sizes available upon request.
Please call our office (520-797-8555) or email (email@example.com) for more information.
COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Guidlines- Updated
It’s possible that face protection may be required when leaving the house to protect from those that may be asymptomatic of the COVID-19 virus. While this is controversial and may help protect from those unaware they are infected, there are pros and cons to both sides. In the event the recommendation is made to wear face coverings, we wanted to stress how to safely use them. Please follow these guidelines for how to effectively use a face covering; the recommendations specify disposable masks, but if you opt for a cloth covering, the best precaution is to wash the covering after use, and to avoid touching the covering (along with maintaining hand hygiene and frequent cleaning of high traffic areas).
If the recommendation is made, please don’t rush to buy surgical masks so desperately needed by your healthcare providers on the front line. A scarf or other homemade device will give the basic protection this rule is trying to provide.
The World Health Organization has also shared other helpful resources (including a myth busters section) to provide accurate information about COVID-19 as we navigate these uncertain times.
