HOW COVID IS TRANSMITTED

  • Close person-to-person contact through respiratory droplets from coughing and sneezing.
  • Through airborne transmission when tiny droplets remain in the air even after the ill person leaves.
  • Symptoms may develop within 14 days of exposure.
  • Only designated laboratory tests can diagnose the virus.

SYMPTOMS 

  • Cough
  • Fever
  • Shortness of breath
  • Sore throat
  • Sudden unexplained onset of nausea, vomiting or diarrhea.

THE BEST WAY TO PROTECT YOURSELF

  • Wash your hands frequently and thoroughly using soap and water for at least 20 seconds. Use alcohol-based hand sanitizer if soap and water aren’t available. 
  • Cough or sneeze into a tissue or flexed elbow, then throw the tissue in the trash. 
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth with unwashed hands. 
  • Social distancing of 6 feet. Avoid unnecessary contact with people or surfaces.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick, sneezing or coughing. 
  • Stay home when you are sick. 
  • Clean and disinfect surfaces and objects people frequently touch. 
  • Wear a mask or mouth/nose covering if you are going out in public.  This is not instead of social distancing of 6 feet.  Continue to follow all other protection tips.  

Important infection prevention 

Before starting this project, please ask yourself the following questions: 

• Have you been in contact with anyone suspected or confirmed to have COVID-19 in the past 14 days? 

• Do you have fever, cough or shortness of breath? 

If you are able to answer “NO” to both questions, then proceed with making masks. 

If you answer “YES” to either or both questions, please do not make masks. If you are experiencing cough, fever, or shortness of breath and have a concern that you may have COVID-19 please call your primary care provider for a risk assessment. 

 

Our Parish Nurse, Rayna, can be found taking blood pressures and confidentially discussing health issues with those attending Fellowship Sunday (1st Sunday of every month down in the church hall) after the 8:30 AM Mass. Workshops on timely health topics are also offered periodically. Watch the bulletin for more info! In addition, Rayna posts literature and notices of local health-related events of interest to our parishioners on her bulletin board in the foyer outside the church hall.

please make an appointment
to be
evaluated by your health care provider.

If assistance is needed, contact
Rayna at 203-231-1619.
