SouthCoast Health Warns Our Patients Not to be COVID-19 Complacent

Thursday, November 19, 2020

For months now, our "new normal" requires taking the precautionary measures of protecting ourselves from exposure to COVID-19. Businesses have adjusted their protocols to reopen to the public, some schools are back to in-person learning or children are learning in small pods with other students, and we are starting to see more social gatherings with friends and family. However, SouthCoast Health wants to warn our patients the dangers of engaging in COVID-19 complacency.

Nationally, the number of cases reported daily are on the rise. As the winter season is approaching, our community cannot be COVID-19 complacent, especially with the start of flu season and the holidays around the corner. Please stay vigilant with your precautionary practices and encourage friends and family to do the same. As a community, our goal should be to avoid overwhelming the healthcare system with people sick with COVID-19, the flu, or both.

As a reminder, here are SouthCoast Health's recommended coronavirus precautions: 

  1. Wash your hands regularly. 
  2. Practice social distancing.
  3. Wear a mask
  4. Get a flu shot.

You can learn more about protecting yourself from COVID-19 exposure here. Also, find out all of our procedures at SouthCoast Health to protect the health of our patients and employees from coronavirus. Remember, community engagement in these precautions and resistance to COVID complacency are the keys to persevering through this pandemic on a home front.
