Coronavirus Protocol

From the New Jersey Department of Health:

At this time, most people in the United States will have community exposure to Coronavirus.

According to a study in The Journal of Pediatrics, the Coronavirus infection tends to be less severe in children, “with more than 90% having mild to moderate disease or even being asymptomatic”; however, “children may be a critical factor in the disease’s rapid spread”.

Steps you can take to prevent spread of flu and the common cold will also help prevent Coronavirus:

  • Wash hands often with soap and water for 20 seconds. If not available, use hand sanitizer.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth with unwashed hands
  • Avoid contact with people who are sick
  • Practice social distancing by maintaining a minimum of 6 feet from others
  • Stay home while you are sick and avoid contact with others
  • Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or sleeve when coughing or sneezing
