As you probably know, Harris County, including Houston, have invoked a stay-at-home order for all residents. If you are elderly, it is crucial that you limit your exposure others, and be vigilant to check yourself for any symptoms of the virus.
Remember that people of all ages can be infected by the virus. Older people and people with pre-existing medical conditions such as asthma, COPD, diabetes, and heart disease, or compromised immunity are more vulnerable to becoming severely ill with the virus. All of us, of every age, must practice an enhanced hygiene routine and social distancing.
Coronavirus spreads mainly from person-to-person contact, or from contact with a contaminated surface. For this reason, it is best to stay at home and avoid coming into contact with anyone, or if you do, then stay 6-feet away from any person.
To protect yourself, wash your hands with soap and hot water thoroughly and often. Avoid touching your nose, eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands. Cover your coughs and sneezes. Stay at home, especially if you are sick or have been exposed to the virus. Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces daily. Use a diluted bleach solution. This includes tables, doorknobs, light switches, countertops, handles, phones, keyboards, toilets and faucets.
Most people with COVID-19 have mild illness and are able to recover at home without medical care. But the elderly and those with underlying conditions are susceptible to more severe suffering, and the need for testing, and perhaps hospitalization.
