Recent studies of Coronavirus have shown that up to 20% of infectious persons have no symptoms, and many others are also infectious for several days before developing symptoms. As a result, persons may be unknowingly infectious and spreading the virus to family and throughout the community.

Hana Community-wide Prevention Strategy

1) PCR testing to identify persons needing isolation during their infectious period (7-10 days)
2) Practice “stay at home”- restrict time away from home to essential activities only
3) When away from home mask up, practice social distancing (minimum 6 ft separation, avoid all group activities)
4) Frequent hand washing with soap or hand sanitizers with 60% alcohol base
5) On return home from essential travel, correctly remove mask
6) Leave shoes outside home
7) Remove potentially contaminated clothes, separate from other clothing, wash in soapy water, dry in drier or on line 8) Immediately on return home shower with soapy cleanse

Covid19 Symptoms – if any of these apply call your health provider:

  • Similar to those of seasonal influenza, head and chest colds, even respiratory allergies
  • Fatigue, muscle and joint aches / pain
  • Fever is present at onset in only 30 % of cases
  • Loss of sense of smell combined with sore throat, dry cough, and absence of “nasal congestion“ / “runny nose”

 

Additional details will be posted here as they develop.
