Amanda Mayle from MCPH joins us to discuss the world-wide fear of the Novel Coronavirus, COVID-19. Although there are no cases in Mesa County, and none in Colorado, it’s always a good idea to be prepared just in case.
As with most other illnesses, the best way to protect yourself is to be conscious of personal space, always wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, and disinfect commonly used surfaces. This will also help protect you against other common illnesses we see around this time of year, such as the common cold and the flu.
