Here To Help
During this time we are seeing our Emergency Response Teams at the forefront ensuring the health and safety of our country’s citizens. Hospital staff are putting their lives and the lives of their families at risk in order to treat the many flooding NY hospitals. Police are patrolling neighborhoods ensuring people are not congregating, and we are abiding by lockdown rules. Restoration companies and custodial workers are putting in the elbow grease in cleaning and sanitizing facilities for when facilities and businesses return to normal.
What can we do to help?
Stay home. Wash your hands and avoid touching your face. Wear gloves and a mask outdoors to limit the spread.
People are under a lot of stress at this time. Many of us are working from home. Schools are out and students are being homeschooled. Confirmed cases are continuing to rise, and people are becoming stir-crazy. Practicing self care is important in maintaining mental stability. Turn off the televisions, have some quiet time, exercise, take a relaxing bath, listen to music or work on a hobby.
If you are exhibiting mild symptoms and have no underlying pre-existing conditions, stay home and isolate yourself from others to avoid potential spread.
In this time, it is essential for us to come together as a community by keeping our distance in order to alleviate the demand on hospital resources and allow the most vulnerable cases to be treated effectively. It is important we keep stress levels to a minimum and show compassion to those suffering economic loss at this time. Give if you are able to give. Lend a hand if you’re able. Honor those who care enough to devote their lives for the benefit of our community.
