Safety comes first and Bitugroup LLC, would like to ensure all safety measures and all needed cautions to be considered at the event. The article below, from American Red Cross, are some useful tips that can help raise awareness.

Communities and events are beginning to reopen as the COVID-19 crisis starts to decline.

Below are some steps from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to help protect yourself and others. Stay informed about what’s happening in your community, and always follow the directions of state and local authorities.

HOW TO PROTECT YOURSELF AND OTHERS

  • Wash your hands oftenwith soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after being in a public place, or after blowing your nose, coughing or sneezing.

    • If soap and water are not readily available, use a hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol.
    • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Avoid close contactwith people who are sick. Some people without symptoms may be able to spread the virus.

    • Practice social distancing by keeping at least 6 feet — about two arm lengths — away from others if you must go out in public.
  • Cover your mouth and nose with a cloth face cover when around others and when you must go out in public, such as to a grocery store. The cloth face cover is meant to protect other people in case you are infected.

    • However, do NOT place cloth face coverings on young children under age 2, anyone who has trouble breathing, or is unconscious, incapacitated or otherwise unable to remove the mask without assistance.
    • In addition, do NOT use a facemask meant for a health care worker.
    • Continue to keep about 6 feet between yourself and others. The cloth face cover is not a substitute for social distancing.
  • Cover your coughs and sneezes. Use a tissue to cover your nose and mouth, and throw used tissues in a lined trash can. If a tissue isn’t available, cough or sneeze into your elbow — not your hands. Wash your hands immediately.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces daily.This includes tables, doorknobs, light switches, countertops, handles, desks, phones, keyboards, toilets, faucets and sinks. Follow CDC guidance.


WHO IS AT A HIGHER RISK?

According to the CDC, early information shows that older adults, people who live in a nursing home or long-term care facility, and individuals of any age with the conditions below are at higher risk of getting very sick from COVID-19:

  • Have serious underlying medical conditions, particularly if not well controlled, such as heart, lung or liver disease; diabetes; moderate to severe asthma; severe obesity; and chronic kidney disease undergoing dialysis.
  • Have a weakened immune system, including those undergoing cancer treatment, smoking and having other immunocompromised conditions.

 

IF YOU ARE SICK

COVID-19 symptoms include fever, coughing and shortness of breath. Keep track of your symptoms, which may appear two to 14 days after exposure, and call to seek medical attention if your symptoms worsen, such as difficulty breathing.

If you think you may have been exposed to COVID-19, contact your health care provider immediately.


Mild Illness

Most people have mild illness and are able to recover at home. If you think you are sick:

  • Stay home and call your doctorfor medical advice and before visiting a medical office. Older adults and people of any age with serious underlying medical conditions should call a health care provider as soon as symptoms start.
  • Separate yourself from other peoplein your home.

    • Avoid sharing personal household items, such as dishes, drinking glasses, cups, eating utensils, towels or bedding. Wash items thoroughly after using them with soap and hot water.
    • On your own, clean and disinfect high-touch surfacesdaily in your sick room and designated bathroom. Have a healthy household member do the same for surfaces in other parts of the home. If you are sharing a bathroom, clean and disinfect it after each use.
  • Wear a cloth face coverif you are around other people (e.g., sharing a room or vehicle) and before you enter a health care provider’s office.

  • Emergency Warning Signs
    If your symptoms become severe, call to get medical attention immediately. Warning signs include:
  • Trouble breathing
  • Persistent pain or pressure in the chest
  • New confusion
  • Inability to wake or stay awake
  • Bluish lips or face


This list is not all inclusive. Consult your medical provider for any other symptoms that are severe or concerning. Call 911 if you have a medical emergency and note if you have, or think you might have, COVID-19.
