COVID-19 Information from NXT Director of Participant Health & Safety, Ian McGinnis
NXT Director of Participant Health & Safety, Ian McGinnis, gives us some helpful tips for staying healthy during the COVID-19 outbreak.
Shortness of breath
COVID-19 spreads from person to person through respiratory droplets. Droplets are produced when an infected person exhales, coughs, or sneezes.
The droplets can be directly inhaled by a person standing in close proximity to the infected individual.
They can land on a surface (countertop, railing, doorknob) or hand which can be touched by a non-infected individual and transmitted to them when they touch their eyes, nose, or mouth.
COVID-19 can be spread by an infected individual even if they’re not experiencing symptoms.
Wash your hands often for at least 20 seconds with soap and water
If soap is unavailable, use hand sanitizer
Avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth with unwashed hands
Practice social distancing
Keep about 6 feet between yourself and others
This is about the distance that respiratory droplets can travel from a cough or sneeze.
It is extremely important that we protect those who are most vulnerable - the elderly and those with pre-existing health conditions (heart disease, lung disease, diabetes)
Stay home if you’re sick!
Cover your coughs and sneezes with a tissue or the inside of your elbow.
Wash your hands often for at least 20 seconds with soap and water or use hand sanitizer.
You can wear a facemask if you’re sick - this prevents your respiratory droplets from being expelled.
Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces.
