We are here to help you if you have any questions about the recent CoronaVirus news.

Below are some common questions and answers that we hope will help ease any concerns you have, and more importantly empower you with knowledge and practical medical advice to help get us all through this pandemic.

We have had recent contact with our advisory medical association to provide updated information and we will provide links to the CDC for additional information.

What is the concern?

The concern is that COVID-19 is a novel new virus, which mutated from a virus affecting animals to one that affects humans. The concern for COVID-19 is that it’s shown sustained person-to-person spread and has caused some deaths in immunocompromised & elderly individuals.

Should I be concerned?

If you are immunocompromised, have a respiratory illness, or are elderly you should take precautions and follow CDC travel recommendations.

When should I be concerned?

If you are immunocompromised, elderly, history of breathing problems and you develop a fever, cough, and shortness of breath.

Should I do more to protect myself and my family?

No one wants to get sick, or spread a cold or flu illness to someone who may be immunocompromised, has lung health concerns, the elderly, or very young.

You should be taking your standard steps to protect yourself and your family as you would to prevent any flu or cold illness.1

There is always a risk for illness, cold, flu, and infections. Now is a good time to reflect upon yourself and your family’s lifestyle; ask yourself if you are taking basic lifestyle measures to stay healthy.

Our bodies have the most powerful system of protection, our immune system. Our immune system fights every day to take care of us, let’s take some time to take care of it. Your immune system only asks for a few basic things; plenty of sleep14low stress,15 and healthy whole food.
