The NAMME National President and Board of Directors join other health care officials in posting this information related to the COVID – 19, the present Corona virus threat.

    1. Get real and up to date information from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) (https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/about/index.html). Also get information from your local and state public health departments. 

      CDC has published resources on preventing the spread of COVID – 19 for: households; child care and schools; work; community events; healthcare settings; first responders and public health communicators.https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/community/home/index.html?CDC_AA_refVal=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.cdc.gov%2Fcoronavirus%2F2019-ncov%2Fcommunity%2Fget-your-household-ready-for-COVID-19.html

 

    1. A useful comparison of COVID – 19 with the flu has been published by Lisa Maragakis, M.D., M.P.H., senior director of infection prevention at Johns Hopkins. This explains how the flu and COVID-19 are similar and how they are different. https://www.hopkinsmedicine.org/health/conditions-and-diseases/coronavirus/coronavirus-disease-2019-vs-the-flu. There is also a helpful link on myths versus facts regarding COVID-19.https://www.hopkinsmedicine.org/health/conditions-and-diseases/coronavirus/2019-novel-coronavirus-myth-versus-fact

 

    1. Follow the simple guidelines for frequent thorough hand washing, coughing into the crook of the arm and self-isolation if symptoms are suspected.
