Social Distancing is a Priority
• Avoid discretionary travel, shopping trips, and social visits.
• Do not visit or retirement or long-term care facilities unless to provide critical assistance.
• Practice good hygiene:
o Wash your hands, especially after touching any frequently used item or surface.
o Avoid touching your face.
o Sneeze or cough into a tissue, or the inside of your elbow.
o Disinfect frequently used items and surfaces as much as possible including your phone.
• The Governor is not considering a stay-at-home directive, but he and Dr. Christ, Director of AZ Dept of Health do advise to do so, without enforcement.
• Stay home, especially if you or a loved one have an underlying medical condition or are elderly. If someone in your household has COVID-19 everyone in the household should stay home until you are recovered.
• Dr. Christ warned that ‘AZ continues to face a national shortage of test collection supplies and lab reagents, and there are not enough tests at this time for everyone who wants to be tested. Those who do not have extreme symptoms like difficulty breathing, knowing whether they COVID-19 or something else, testing really won’t help them. There is no specific treatment for this disease, and the result of a COVID-19 test will not change your clinical treatment while you are sick.”
