Make Educated Decisions about Health & Safety during the Current Public Health Crisis
Project Self-Sufficiency has compiled the following information regarding the Coronavirus.
Information will be updated periodically.
Project Self-Sufficiency has worked closely with local government and emergency management professionals to compile the following resources regarding the current public health crisis.
Current data about the Coronavirus on a global and national scale can be found at the Johns Hopkins Resource Center.
Guidance about what to do if you are sick can be found on the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention Website.
Getting vaccinated prevents severe illness, hospitalizations, and death. Unvaccinated people should get vaccinated and continue masking until they are fully vaccinated. With the Delta variant, this is more urgent than ever. CDC has updated guidance for fully vaccinated people based on new evidence on the Delta variant.
The best way to avoid contracting the Coronavirus, or Covid-19, is to adhere to the following:
Wear a mask over your nose and mouth.
Maintain social distancing, allowing at least 6 feet between yourself and others.
Avoid crowds and poorly ventilated spaces.
Frequently wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. When soap and running water are unavailable, use an alcohol-based hand rub with at least 60% alcohol. Always wash hands that are visibly soiled.
Avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth with unwashed hands.
Cover coughs and sneezes.
Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
Clean and disinfect high touch surfaces daily.
Monitor your health. If you have a fever, cough or difficulty breathing, seek medical attention.
Stay informed and follow the advice given by your healthcare provider.
