If you are working from home, had a trip or event canceled, or are lost without your favorite sports, friends and extended family beside you. Here are some productive and fun things you can do during this time.
Location - Try to find yourself a dedicated and comfortable spot to work that you can associate with your job and leave when you’re off the clock.
Facetime/Video Chat - When possible, use video over the standard conference call to help create more interactions and avoid loneliness.
Create lists - Every morning, create a list of what you will deliver by the end of the day.
Spring Cleaning - Take this time to declutter and reorganize your home or apartment!
Stay healthy and stay positive and together we will get through this.
Balancing Work and Life during Challenging Times
Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970 “To assure safe and healthful working conditions for working men and women; by authorizing enforcement of the standards developed under the Act; by assisting and encouraging the States in their efforts to assure safe and healthful working conditions; by providing for research, information, education, and training in the field of occupational safety and health.”
The COVID-19 virus is thought to spread mainly from personto-person, including:
■ Between people who are in close contact with one another (within about 6 feet).
■ Through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes. These droplets can land in the mouths or noses of people who are nearby or possibly be inhaled into the lungs.
■ It may be possible that a person can get COVID-19 by touching a surface or object that has SARS-CoV-2 on it and then touching their own mouth, nose, or possibly their eyes, but this is not thought to be the primary way the virus spreads.
■ People are thought to be most contagious when they are most symptomatic (i.e., experiencing fever, cough, and/or shortness of breath).
■ Some spread might be possible before people show symptoms; there have been reports of this type of asymptomatic transmission with this new coronavirus, but this is also not thought to be the main way the virus spreads.
Although the United States has implemented public health measures to limit the spread of the virus, it is likely that some person-to-person transmission will continue to occur.
Note: Older adults and people of any age with certain serious underlying medical conditions like lung disease, heart disease, or diabetes are at higher risk for developing more serious complications from COVID-19 illness and should seek care as soon as symptoms start.
Monitor the person for worsening symptoms. Know the emergency warning signs.
Have their healthcare provider’s contact information on hand.
If they are getting sicker, call their healthcare provider. For medical emergencies, call 911 and notify the dispatch personnel that they have or are suspected to have COVID-19.
If you develop emergency warning signs for COVID-19 get medical attention immediately. Emergency warning signs include*:
Persistent pain or pressure in the chest
New confusion or inability to arouse
Bluish lips or face
*This list is not all inclusive. Please consult your medical provider for any other symptoms that are severe or concerning.
