I’m a firm believer in refresher courses. Like the salsa lessons Jacqueline had given to Louie and me as a Christmas gift years ago. It took us forever to start the lessons because we were so busy at the office. When we finally donned our dancing shoes, we had a ball. But, too busy to practice, we had to re-enroll in Salsa “101” – three times. Fortunately, this caused no dire consequences.
Sadly, it’s not the same with Covid-19. Too many people have ignored the key steps necessary to make a difference in the fight to control the virus. We all know the routine – wear face masks, social distance, wash hands. But without 100% participation, containing the spread can’t happen.
Until vaccines are widely available, we have only a small window to get this dance right. Thankfully, I found a refresher article containing updates on protecting one another from spreading the virus, especially as winter’s colder weather will keep us indoors and in closer physical contact. The refresher’s topics are worth a read with the latest. From stressing less about disinfecting packages and being prepared to checking symptoms and getting tested to wearing masks properly, washing hands, using hand sanitizers, and reducing risks.
Stay safe this Thanksgiving by staying close to home.
We can do this.
No – We. Must. Do. This.
This is your country, and it’s up to you to save it.” – English translation of a saying in Taiwan
Washing Hands + Wearing a Mask + Social Distancing = Saving Lives
