May 24, 2018

We, at Baron Rick W Dr, prioritize the health and well-being of our patients above all else. In light of the global outbreak of the Coronavirus (COVID-19), we want to assure you that we are closely monitoring the situation and taking necessary precautions to ensure your safety when you visit our clinic.

Stay Informed and Protect Your Health

The COVID-19 pandemic has brought unprecedented challenges to the healthcare industry and has impacted individuals and communities worldwide. Your safety and the safety of our staff is our top priority. We want to provide you with accurate information about the virus and share steps you can take to protect yourself and prevent the spread of the disease.

Understanding COVID-19

Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) is an infectious disease caused by a newly discovered coronavirus.

The virus primarily spreads through droplets of saliva or discharge from the nose when an infected person coughs or sneezes. It can also spread by touching surfaces or objects contaminated with the virus and then touching your face, mouth, or eyes.

COVID-19 symptoms may include fever, cough, shortness of breath, fatigue, body aches, sore throat, loss of taste or smell, and in severe cases, difficulty breathing or pneumonia.

Steps to Protect Yourself

To reduce the risk of contracting and spreading COVID-19, it is crucial to follow the recommended preventive measures:

  1. Wash your hands frequently: Wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after being in a public place or after coughing, sneezing, or blowing your nose. If soap and water are not available, use a hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol content.
  2. Maintain social distancing: Stay at least 6 feet away from others who are not from your household to minimize the risk of exposure.
  3. Wear a face mask: Wear a mask that covers your nose and mouth when you are in public settings where social distancing measures are difficult to maintain.
  4. Avoid touching your face: Refrain from touching your eyes, nose, and mouth to prevent the transmission of the virus from contaminated surfaces to your body.
  5. Cover your mouth and nose when coughing or sneezing: Use a tissue or your elbow to cover your mouth and nose when coughing or sneezing, and dispose of used tissues immediately.
  6. Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces: Regularly clean and disinfect objects and surfaces that are frequently touched, such as doorknobs, light switches, and cell phones.
