As we all adapt to new ways to work, live, and play in the midst of a pandemic, let’s review recommendations made by the nation’s leading medical and public health officials, and adopt the appropriate health and social etiquette techniques to reduce the spread of COVID-19.
The US Surgeon General, Dr. Jerome Adams, outlined a few practical measures to reduce the spread of Covid-19 during a recent news briefing.
Here are the Surgeon General’s “Three W’s”:
- Wash your hands
- Watch your distance – stay at least six feet from others and avoid crowded places
- Wear a face mask
Dr. Adams noted that New York City and the state of New York have reduced numbers to a positivity rate of less than 1% by following these three practices.
Read the full CNN Health article to view Dr. Adam’s remarks, as well as the recommendations made by Dr. Anthony Fauci, a leading authority on immunology and infectious disease, during a webinar with the Brown School of Public Health.
Perhaps by following the recommendations of leading public health officials, and practicing the “Three W’s” we can make a local, national, and global impact to reduce the number of COVID-19 positive individuals and minimize the spread of the virus.
