OKC CHUMS: COVID-19 UPDATE

 

Thank you for your support, care, notes of encouragement and for every adjustment you have made to make the best of your new reality. As we continue to self-distance and stay at home during this global pandemic, we hope that each member of our Oklahoma City Chums community is staying safe, both mentally and physically, while adhering to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC)

guidelines.

OVERALL HEALTH AND WELLNESS

 Prevention:

  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.

  • Avoid crowds as the virus can spread within six feet of separation.

  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.

  • Stay home when you are sick except to get medical care. If you think you have been infected, contact the medical facility before you go so that they can prepare. Also, wear a face mask.

  • Cover your cough or sneeze with your elbow or arm. When using a tissue, throw the tissue in the trash and wash your hands immediately.

  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe. The virus can live on hard surfaces for up to nine days, so please make sure your wipes and hand sanitizers have at least 60% alcohol content to be effective.

  • Wash your hands often 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.

  • We love to greet and embrace one another with hugs, kisses, and the holding and shaking of hands at various events. Please curtail our previous norms and practice social distancing.

Preparedness:

  • Stay vigilant about self-care and keeping your immune system at optimal levels. Eat healthy fruits and fresh vegetables full of antioxidants and take vitamin C.

  • Stay hydrated, drink plenty of water, and get plenty of sleep.

  • Keep items for a preparedness kit (can foods, water, one month's worth of medications, blankets, pet food, etc.).
