GOVERNOR Ralph DLG Torres on Wednesday issued a Covid-19 guidance for the public, strongly recommending that people stay at home amid ongoing concerns over Covid-19.

Avoid unnecessary travel as much as possible, the governor said.

“If you feel sick or if someone in your home is sick, please stay home. Do not go to work. Avoid social gatherings. Contact your personal doctor or call the Covid-19 info line: 285-1542, 285-1672, 285-1352 or 285-1854.”

The elderly are more vulnerable to becoming severely ill with the virus, the governor said. “Please stay home and away from other people as much as possible.”

Persons with a preexisting illness such as asthma, diabetes, and heart disease are more vulnerable to becoming severely ill with the virus, and should also stay home and away from other people as much as possible, the governor added.

He also advised members of the public to:

• Work or do schoolwork from home whenever possible and reasonable.

• Avoid social gatherings in groups of more than 10.

• Avoid eating out at restaurants; use drive-thru, take-out, or delivery options.

• Continue practicing good hygiene:

o Wash hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.

o Use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer if soap and water are not available.

o Cover your mouth and nose with tissue or your sleeve (not your hands) when coughing or sneezing.

o Avoid touching your face.

o Disinfect frequently used items (cellphones, computers, household items) as much as possible.
