To our valued customers and colleagues,
Care with LOVE is actively monitoring the progression of the coronavirus, COVID-19, to
ensure that we have the most accurate and latest information on the threat of the virus.
While most cases of COVID-19 are mild, causing only fever and cough, a very small
percentage of cases become severe and may progress particularly in the elderly and
people with underlying medical conditions. Because this is the primary population that
Care with LOVE serves, we understand your concerns and want to share with you how
our organization is responding to the threat of COVID-19.
We are following updates and procedures from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC)
State Department of Health, local and county authorities, the Home Care Association of
America and other agencies and resources. Here are 5 important steps from the CDC
website to follow in order to prevent yourself and people around you from infection.
5 Tips to protect yourself and others:
1- Clean your hands often
- Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds especially
after you have been in a public place, or after blowing your nose, coughing, or
- If soap and water are not readily available, use a hand sanitizer that
contains at least 60% alcohol. Cover all surfaces of your hands and rub them
together until they feel dry.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
2- Avoid close contact
- Avoid close contact with people who are sick
- Put distance between yourself and other people if COVID-19 is spreading
in your community. This is especially important for people who are at higher risk
of getting very sick.
3- Stay home if you’re sick
- Stay home if you are sick, except to get medical care. Learn what to do if you are sick.
4- Cover coughs and sneezes
- Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when you cough or sneeze or use the inside of your elbow.
- Throw used tissues in the trash.
- Immediately wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not readily available, clean your hands with a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol.
5- Clean and disinfect
- Clean AND disinfect frequently touched surfaces daily. This includes tables, doorknobs, light switches, countertops, handles, desks, phones, keyboards, toilets, faucets, and sinks.
- If surfaces are dirty, clean them: Use detergent or soap and water prior to disinfection.
