While Ohio is moving forward with a gradual startup following a six-week shutdown of non-essential businesses, the Ross County Health Commissioner reminds us that we are a long way from being out of danger from the COVID-19 virus.
Dr. Christopher Brown says COVID-19 seems to be unpredictable on who and how it impacts those that get it. Among its victims, COVID-19 can result in a range from mild symptoms to serious illness and even death, especially among people with pre-existing health conditions.
As the restart of Ohio gets going, Dr. Brown reminds all of us to continue following the five protocols:
1.) Wear a mask when in public (Strongly recommended, but no longer mandated. This is a modification from the governor as of 2pm 4/28/20)
2.) Conduct daily health assessments by employers and employees
3.) Maintain hand washing, sanitizing and social distancing
4.) Clean and sanitize workplaces throughout workday and at the close of business or between shifts
5.) Limit capacity to meet social distancing guidelines.
