As many have seen, our National Council, Richard Beppler has issued a statement regarding the resuming of Jr.O.U.A.M. activities with limitations and precautions, within guidelines of each State as we begun returning to normal lifestyles.
West Virginia State Councilor David Kendig has asked that all West Virginia Councils set the target date of May 22, 2020 to start reopening and holding Council meetings. Guidelines for social distancing and face masks will need to be followed.
Here are some recommendations from Medical and EMS sources to consider for resuming activities.
1) Continue the established COVID-19 precautions:
Wear gloves and mask when out in public, maintain 6 feet social distance, disinfect areas of possible cross-contamination with household disinfectants (preferable one with Bleach), wash hands frequently and certainly before touching your face or foods, when washing is not readily available, use a hand sanitizer with at least 70% alcohol.
2) Remember that COVID-19 affects different people in different ways. Most infected people will develop mild to moderate symptoms.
Common symptoms: fever, tiredness, dry cough.
Seek medical attention if you have a fever, a cough, and difficulty breathing. Call ahead.
On average it takes 5–6 days from when someone is infected with the virus for symptoms to show, however it can take up to 14 days.
People with mild symptoms who are otherwise healthy should self-isolate.
