Details for COLUMBUS COMMUNITY HOSPITAL - Ad from 2021-01-02
Are you headed out? Are you going to the store or a friend’s house? Are you wearing a mask? C OVID-19 is still a threat in our community and new positive cases are being reported every day. That’s why Columbus Community Hospital is urging local residents to protect themselves, their neighbors and their loved ones by wearing masks. Masks are an important public safety tool. They are protective barriers that help contain the respiratory droplets produced when a person with COVID-19 coughs, sneezes or talks. These droplets are what spread COVID-19 and when masks trap them, they help slow the spread of the virus. In fact, the CDC says cloth face coverings are one of the most powerful weapons we have to slow and stop the spread of the virus. Wear a Mask When You Are: • Out in public • Using mass transportation • Attending events and gatherings • While in quarantine or sick and interacting with others at home • Caring for someone who is sick Though COVID-19 is a mild illness for most, for some it can be life-threatening. When you wear a mask, you help keep others safe and potentially make a lifesaving difference. For more information on how you can help fight COVID-19, visit columbushosp.org.
