A Message from Rick Vines on the Coronavirus

Dear Friends,

 

It seems like coronavirus is all anyone can talk about — and that’s for good reason.

This virus is sweeping the globe, and has been classified as a pandemic…

Which means it’s a serious health condition that’s spreading at above-average rates, all across the world.

Now, I believe we SHOULD take coronavirus very seriously…

And I want you to know, you can take some basic steps to keep yourself and your loved ones healthy during these uncertain times.

Here’s what I recommend you do:

1. Know Your Risk

Early research out of China shows the people who are most at risk are older folks, as well as people with underlying medical conditions, like diabetes, heart disease, or respiratory issues.

So, if you fall into one of these categories, make sure you are taking EXTRA precautions during this time. Try to stay 6 feet away from other people, and practice “social distancing” as much as possible.

That means staying out of crowded public places, like malls or movie theatres… and staying at your own home as much as possible to reduce your risk.

What can you do?

2. Keep Things Clean

Clean, clean, clean! Now, you DON’T have to run out and stock up on hand sanitizer — but you SHOULD be frequently washing your hands with soap and warm water, for at least 20 seconds.

Keep your hands away from your face, mouth, and eyes to help stop the virus from entering your body.

And be sure to wipe down surfaces you touch frequently, like doorknobs, keyboards, light switches, and even your cell phone. You can use products like bleach and Lysol. If you are really concerned you can have Vines use a fogger in your home or business using a green product.

If you ARE out of your home for any reason, please avoid touching “high-touch” areas, like elevator buttons or stair railings. If you MUST touch them, use a tissue, a sleeve, or something else to put a “barrier” between your body and the surface.

And then wash your hands as soon as you’re able!

If I sound like a broken record, it’s because washing your hands is the #1 thing you can do to prevent the spread of germs. It’s THAT important!

3. What If You Get Sick?

Typical symptoms of coronavirus include coughing, fever, and shortness of breath… and these signs can show up anywhere from 2–14 days after you’re exposed.

This is another reason why it’s important to stay away from other people who may be infected — they could be sick without knowing it.

If you start to feel sick, call your doctor and let them know as soon as you can — but please, don’t drive to their office unannounced. Most of us have specific instructions from our County Health Department about where to send our patients for testing.

Be sure to follow your doctor’s orders — many people will be able to recover at home in about 2 weeks’ time.

4. Try To Keep Things Normal

It can be scary to stay at home for a long period of time… and it’s normal to feel anxious or unsure of what you can do. This is a great time to read you bible and listen to sermons online.

So, try to keep things normal as much as possible. Instead of having friends over for dinner, call them up on FaceTime and “get together” digitally. You don’t have to completely give up social connection… it just needs to look a little different for now.

If you normally take a walk after dinner, go take a walk after dinner! You can stick to your normal routine as much as possible — just try to keep at least 6 feet between you and other people. If you’re taking a walk around the block, it shouldn’t be too hard.

Yes, I’m going to do MY best to keep the same routine, too! I might even teach Stacey how to fish !!

Be careful out there, and take care of yourself. I’ll do my beat to keep you posted and remember if your in a bind Call VINES !!!
