We don’t know what we don’t know When COVID-19 cases first started popping up here in Michigan, things became real. It’s easy to assume since we wash out hands and know to cough in our elbows that we’ll avoid sharing or catching any virus. But here are a few facts directly from the Centers for Disease Control to consider: Wash your hands for at least 20 seconds each time. Hand Sanitizer must contain at least 60% alcohol to be considered effective. You do not need a face mask unless you are caring for someone who is sick (any the are not able to wear a face mask) You should clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces daily. Close contact is defined as being within approximately 6 feet of a COVID-19 case for a prolonged period of time – or – having direct contact with infectious secretions of a COVID-19 case (i.e. being coughed on). DID YOU KNOW? if you experience mental health issues, you’re not alone. According to information from the National Institute Mental Health, one in five American adults have experienced a mental health issue in their lifetime or will experience a mental illness in any given year. Mental health does not discriminate, but help is available.
