Here are some things you can do:
Keep yourself and others healthy
- Wash your hands with soap and water, for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating, and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands
- Stay home when you are sick
- Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash
- Actively Promote Social Distancing – encourage children to practice social distancing and good hygiene when interacting with family and friends of all ages.
Know the facts (and help prevent the spread of rumors)
- Be sure you are using a reliable source for your information
- CDC updates its website frequently with information and guidance about COVID-19: www.cdc.gov/nCoV
- CDC continues to provide updates for travelers at: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/travelers/index.html
- MDPH provides regular updates for the Commonwealth of Massachusetts: https://www.mass.gov/2019coronavirus
- The Belmont Health Department will post community wide advisories on the Town of Belmont’s home page if there is a change in risk level: www.belmont-ma.gov
- CDC and Massachusetts Dept. of Public Health recommend the use of face coverings in public settings where it is difficult to maintain a social distance of six feet from others, for example, in a pharmacy or grocery store. More information on face coverings can be found here: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/prevent-getting-sick/diy-cloth-face-coverings.html
Please continue to remain calm and open-minded
- History has seen many instances of societies excluding, blaming, or devaluing those feared to have an unfamiliar disease. Recent examples include Ebola, HIV, and past influenza pandemics where fear led to stigma and discrimination. In many instances, the discriminatory actions caused the health problems to worsen as those who felt alienated avoided seeking out health care and information they needed. We encourage you to continue to remain calm.
If you are experiencing a medical emergency, please call 911. When calling 911, please remember to notify dispatch of any possible COVID-19 symptoms or exposures.
