COVID-19 and the Threat to Seniors and Others

As COVID-19 lingers, we are learning more and more about its long-term impact, especially when it comes to our seniors or young people with pre-existing medical issues.

A recent report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention introduced a new set of issues and concerns to consider.

The report explained in detail that people of any age with certain pre-existing conditions are at extreme risk, and other conditions may result in people being at risk. You can look here for the complete list from the CDC.

So, what does all this mean?

The most important thing is to do everything you can to reduce your risk of getting COVID-19. With the increase in positive cases, especially in Florida, that means limiting your interaction with other people as much as possible. The more you interact with other people, the better your chances of catching COVID-19.

That means following all the CDC guidelines for safety. Avoid interaction, and when you must be around other people avoid crowds, practice social distancing, wear a mask, wash your hands and clean and disinfect commonly touched surfaces.  If you start feeling sick, contact your doctor as quickly as possible.

If you are considering a visit with older family members, consider the ramifications before taking that trip. They miss you, and you miss them. But health and safety should be the top priority.
