Dear LifeQuest Members:
With the ever-changing news of the Coronavirus (COVID-19), we would like to reassure our members and participants that LifeQuest of Arkansas is carefully monitoring the situation and preparing for it appropriately.
The Executive Committee of the Board of Directors is discussing the developing situation and exploring options regarding our spring term. We are in communication with local, state and national agencies to keep abreast of the situation.
With the winter term completed, we are fortunate to have a break from classes. We urge you to stay home and take care of yourselves. If you show signs of fever, respiratory illness, such as sneezing, coughing or congestion, contact your local provider.
Right now, the best thing we can all do is take all reasonable precautions to keep ourselves healthy, as suggested by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC):
- Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the restroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing or sneezing.
- If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol. Always wash hands with soap and water if hands are visibly dirty.
- Avoid close contact with people, who are sick.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth.
- Stay home when you are sick.
- Cover your cough in your shirt or elbow, or with a tissue, then, throw the tissue in the trash.
- Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using Lysol spray or wipes.
- Have at least 2 weeks worth of medication on hand.
Follow the CDC’s recommendations for a facemask:
- The CDC does not recommend that people, who are well, wear a facemask to protect themselves from COVID-19.
- Facemasks should be used, by people who show symptoms of COVID-19, to help prevent the spread to others. The use of facemasks is also crucial for health workers and people who are taking care of someone in close settings.
We will continue to monitor the situation and provide updates as needed. We wish you good health during this time.
