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.

The best way to avoid contracting the Coronavirus, or Covid-19, is to adhere to the following:

  • 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.

  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.

  • Maintain social distancing, allowing at least 6 feet between yourself and anyone who is coughing or sneezing.

  • If you have a fever, cough or difficulty breathing, seek medical attention.

  • Stay informed and follow the advice given by your healthcare provider.
