Updates on COVID-19 (Coronavirus)
NAMI-Warren County wants you to remain healthy, safe and calm during this season of national health concerns. We will follow the guidelines recommended by NAMI NJ and the State of New Jersey.
How you can protect yourself and others from the spread of coronavirus or any other respiratory disease:
– Wash your hands, often and for at least 20 seconds (sing Happy Birthday!)
– Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
– Get your flu vaccine if you have not already.
– Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
– Use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol if soap and water are not available.
– Cover any cough or sneeze with a tissue then throw it in the trash or use the inside of your elbow.
– Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.
– Make sure you have the recommended foods, drinks, medications, and pet supplies needed to quarantine yourself for a few weeks.
Ways to Avoid Headline Anxiety and to Cope with the News:
1. Avoid triggering topics in the news.
2. Limit your news consumption.
3. Be cognizant of your social media use.
4. Practice good stress management.
5. Understand that it is normal to be somewhat concerned by this.
