More facts and fiction on COVID-19
IF I HAVE THE VIRUS BUT SHOW NO SYMPTOMS, I’M NOT CONTAGIOUS
This is not true. It’s incredibly important to be safe when coming in contact with people- you never know who has the virus. It’s also incredibly important to self-quarantine after you’ve possibly been in contact with the virus. This is important because you may have the virus and may not be exhibiting any symptoms because sometimes, they take time to develop (two weeks). There have been people with the virus that experienced mild to no symptoms, but that didn’t reduce their ability to infect others. So be safe. For your sake and for others.
SNEEZING IS A SYMPTOM OF COVID-19
Fact but not always
COVID-19 shares some symptoms with a common flu, but not all. Sneezing for example, is not a classic symptom of this virus. While we are trying to be safe, we must be reasonable and not discriminate people. If someone sneezes, they may just have dust in their nose. Maintain your distance, but don’t run away. Be safe AND respectful.
I hope y’all are doing well? You’re ll in my prayers. This too shall pass!
