Know How it Spreads

Older adults and people who have severe underlying medical conditions like heart or lung disease or diabetes seem to be at higher risk for developing serious complications from COVID-19 illness. More information on Are you at higher risk for serious illness?

 

Know How it Spreads

  • There is currently no vaccine to prevent coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19).
  • The best way to prevent illness is to avoid being exposed to this virus.
  • The virus is thought to spread mainly from person-to-person.
    • Between people who are in close contact with one another (within about 6 feet).
    • Through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs, sneezes or talks.
    • These droplets can land in the mouths or noses of people who are nearby or possibly be inhaled into the lungs.
    • Some recent studies have suggested that COVID-19 may be spread by people who are not showing symptoms.
 

More details: How COVID-19 Spreads

Everyone Should:

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 sneezing.
  • 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.
 

Avoid close contact

    • Remember that some people without symptoms may be able to spread virus.
 

Cover your mouth and nose with a cloth face cover when around others

  • You could spread COVID-19 to others even if you do not feel sick.
  • Everyone should wear a cloth face cover when they have to go out in public, for example to the grocery store or to pick up other necessities.
    • Cloth face coverings should not be placed on young children under age 2, anyone who has trouble breathing, or is unconscious, incapacitated or otherwise unable to remove the mask without assistance.
  • The cloth face cover is meant to protect other people in case you are infected.
  • Do NOT use a facemask meant for a healthcare worker.
  • Continue to keep about 6 feet between yourself and others. The cloth face cover is not a substitute for social distancing.

Cover coughs and sneezes

  • If you are in a private setting and do not have on your cloth face covering, remember to always 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.
 

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.
  • Then, use a household disinfectant. Most common

Here we Grow again!

The Shelby County Democratic Party is pleased to announce the launch of the Shelby County Daylight Democrats. You asked for it, and we heard you!

Background: We all know interested Democrats who would like to be more active, but who either prefer not to drive at night or can’t attend Thursday meetings.

Proposal: We are proposing a new addition to the Shelby County Democratic Party: The Shelby County Daylight Democrats! This meeting opportunity will make allowances for
Dems who can’t attend on Thursday nights.

Details: This effort will be led by Dr. Marsha Sturdevant, 2nd Vice Chair.  We are envisioning an additional, less formal, monthly meeting on a weekend afternoon. Information would be shared, guest speakers would speak, and we would have time to plan and refine County Party activities, e.g. Voters Reg Events, Candidate Canvassing and phone-banking, and In-district meetings with state House and Senate
members – just to name a few possibilities. 

Meeting time and site:  We are announcing and organizing. When and where meetings would occur will depend upon your expressing interest. We ask that you let us know your intentions by sending an email to: shelbycountydem65@gmail.com or msturdevant72@gmail.com. We will then respond with a mini form for you to provide input. Let’s do this!  Question?- 205-936-5953Print
