“COVID SAFE PLEDGE, FACT SHEET & CHECK LIST”
I wish to “First Do No Harm” to myself and others,
•MASK, keep my •DISTANCE, •WASH MY HANDS with soap and water, •DECONTAMINATE & •DISINFECT surfaces and objects, •VENTILATE my home, •ISOLATE & QUARANTINE Myself, •SEEK TESTING for the virus and antibodies when appropriate, •SEEK EARLY MEDICAL CARE AND TREATMENT when sick with Covid – 19 signs and/or symptoms, •LINE UP FOR COVID – 19 VACCINATION as it is available to me.
I do these things for you and for me, to help prevent the spread of the Covid – 19 virus
I KNOW THAT
the COVID – 19 VIRUS (Novel Coronavirus 2019)(C19)(SARS Co V 2)
√C19 poses little danger to healthy young people√C19 is often spread by people who have no symptoms√C19 is often spread by people who are not sick, or may be minimally sick √C19 poses great danger to the health and life and often causes the death of vulnerable, sick and elderly people√C19 can rarely cause severe illness and death in young, healthy people√C19 is easily spread from person to person in closed spaces√C19 spread can be prevented if I keep my distance√C19 is less likely to spread from person to person in open spaces√C19 spread can be reduced if I wear a mask√C19 can be killed by hand washing.√ I also know that, in the absence of vaccination, or natural herd immunity, frequent testing for the virus is critical to success in prevention and slowing the spread of serious and fatal Covid – 19 Infections.
I will continue to practice these “Boring Basics” and “Simple Strategies” to do my part to help prevent the spread of the Covid – 19 Virus.

Given what we know for certain about The Covid – 19 Virus
Keep The Defenses Up and Keep The Dose Down
Don’t give the C19 virus to yourself or your family, friends, neighbors and the folks in the village.
C19 Facts to Consider
•Benefits of Open Air and
•Killing The Virus with Hand Washing
•Disinfection and Decontamination
•Dose – Host Interaction: Host Defenses
•Uncertainty about the virus and C19 Disease in general
•Risk factors: Dose, Defenses, RISK FACTORS?
AT RISK SPREADERS WE ARE?
I think we can safely say that this virus is unlikely to harm healthy young people, unless they get a big dose of the bug. That said, most of us are
AT RISK SPREADERS.
How much risk? How much spreading can we do? That can not be determined without point of care and near real time testing for the virus and for antibodies to the virus.
GENERAL HEALTH PROMOTION TO INCREASE RESISTANCE TO INFECTION AND TO PROMOTE YOUR GENERAL HEALTH
Rest, sleep, exercise, proper diet, meditation, music, friends, family, laughter, shelter, clothing, walking in nature, sunshine, ventilation, yoga and other general health promotion strategies will increase your resistance to infection and help you to stay strong despite this unprecedented global crisis. Let’s use this as an opportunity to Take The Best Care(TM) of ourselves and each other.
