COVID-19 MAY HAVE LONG TERM EFFECTS ON THE BODY

Information & Advisory for Covid-19

COVID-19 is a potentially fatal respiratory illness that can spread easily from person to person. The outbreak first started in China, but the virus continues to spread internationally and in the United States. To ensure continuity of operations of essential functions, the CDC has put out an advisory for healthcare professionals, critical infrastructure workers, schools, law enforcement, transit operators, business and others on how how to best protect themselves and the community. Obviously, our first responders need to optimize the use of the following personal protective equipment (PPE) in response to coronavirus disease:

  • Eye Protection: Critical to protect from infection through ocular (eye) surface, portals through which the virus may travel into the body and, eventually, to the lungs.
  • Gowns: Essential fluid-resistant and impermeable protective clothing, including isolation gowns and surgical gowns.
  • N95 Respirator: These respirators reduce the wearer’s exposure to airborne particles, from small particle aerosols to large droplets, filtering out at least 95% of air particles.
  • Facemasks: FDA-cleared surgical masks are designed to protect against splashes and sprays and are prioritized for use when such exposures are anticipated.
  • Gloves: Nonsterile disposable patient examination gloves are necessary for the care of patients with suspected or confirmed COVID-19.
