We are blessed to have a community of superior customers. As such we are inclined to keep it that way. It is in our best interest, and everyone else's to ensure that everyone makes it through this Coronavirus / COVID19 pandemic as smoothly as possible. Now... this might come as a surprise to you but we are not healthcare experts... but we do care about you people so we thought we'd take a moment to share some of the information that the CDC has put out in order to help spread the word.
The following symptoms may appear 2-14 days after exposure.*
*This is based on what has been seen previously as the incubation period of MERS-CoV viruses.
Soap is dope. It destroys the virus on your skin. You don't need to know how it does that in order to use it though. So wash your hands ya filthy scrub. And if you would like to know how soap works, check out this article (Don't worry, there are pictures!)
If your plan is "drive to Wal-Mart and buy all of the toilet paper you can" ...you need to have a better plan. The CDC has some great, simple guidelines to help you prepare.
There's a lot of talk about flattening the curve, which as we understand it really means slowing down the infection rate. That way hospitals aren't overwhelmed. It sounds like a lot of folks are going to eventually catch a case of this thing, the biggest question is when. If we can slow down the infection rate hopefully we can ease the burden on our healthcare system. This virus affects the lungs, and we only have enough ventilators at any one time for so many people. You can check out a simulator and a frankly much more informative article about how Social Distancing works here!
