As you are aware, there has been a recent and alarming resurgence of the Coronavirus throughout the United States. Uncertainty extends to businesses, schools, and really all of us! What should we do in this time?
The answer is not totally detailed because there is no vaccine yet to protect us against the virus. However, some things are very clear. We must practice safe hygiene and use common sense as has been outlined numerous times by many leading healthcare professionals and scientists.
We at BLUMINE HEALTH want to remind you, your employees and your families of the precautionary measures that you need to incorporate into your daily routine to protect yourself and others from contracting COVID-19.
Following are a number of healthcare tips you should be practicing continually during this time:
- Wear your mask when you go out, especially when you are among others!
- Don't shake hands or hug -- as we are so accustomed to doing in our greetings to friends!
- Stay healthy at home! Get a MINIMUM of eight hours sleep!
- Avoid crowds and gatherings! Groceries and other essential items should be your only trips out!
- Practice social distancing! Feels awkward when you see someone you know, but they are practicing it too, everyone understands, so smile and keeping moving!
- Know when to seek care! Call ahead for appointments so prescreen protocols can determine the necessity of a visit or if telehealth is the better option.
- Wash hands and surfaces! Can’t do this enough!
- Apply for benefits if you qualify! If you are uncertain, BluMine may be able to assist!
- Prioritize mental health! Sometimes mental fortitude can create better physical health!
- Do not travel unless absolutely necessary! Remember, groceries and essential items!
- Report noncompliance to authorities! Just be sensitive and aware of the people in your surroundings!

“Symptom Checking” is becoming the next evolution of COVID-19 lingo. With the Coronavirus, 2 to 14 days may be its incubation period after exposure. “Symptom Check” these items:
- Dry Cough
- Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
- Consistent body aches and pains (similar to a flu diagnosis)
- Runny Nose
- Sore Throat
- Loss of smell or taste
The severity of COVID-19 symptoms can be elusive and affect people on different ends of the scale, mild or severe. Some people may have no symptoms at all; or be “asymptomatic” as current publications are beginning to surface. People who are older or who have existing chronic medical conditions, such as heart disease, lung disease or diabetes, or who have compromised immune systems are finding their bout with the virus to be the most critical and challenging. Once comparable to a single percentage notch above the flu, COVID-19 is proving to be non-selective with how it is affecting people in all age groups.
