WARNING ORDER 01-2020   COVID-19
   
MEDICAL ALERT TO ALL US VOLUNTEERS
7 March 2020
To: Commander USV-JSC
Subject: Corona Virus

There is national concern about the possible morbidity and mortality related to this viral infection. The virus originated in china. In January, the disease was carried over to the USA by infected persons. The Seattle area has been a focal point for the infection with most mortality noted in the Northwest area. Other areas of America and the World have also documented cases of this viral infection. The Elderly seem most at risk. But everyone is at risk of infection of becoming infected, ill, and infecting others.

It is recommended that travel to abroad should be delayed until the infection has run its course probably the next 30-60 days. Anyone traveling overseas should self “quarantine”. This means that you should not visit family (especially the young and elderly) or attend gathering/ social events for a period of 2 weeks. Incubation time is about 14 days. This is the time when you could be infective but not yet be symptomatic.

It is also recommended by MRC Command that you limit your outside activities in general over the next 30 days (more if situation warrants it). Limit attending places where you would be in proximity 6 feet or less to others who may be infected. The principle is to break the infection cycle. If you are sick i.e. fever, chills, rash, cough, or respiratory (lung) infection symptoms, you should not go to work (with your employer’s permission) unless critical to the job site.

You can get infection from being “coughed” on by an infected person (obviously). But the greatest risk of acquiring disease is from touching infected surfaces and transferring the disease by your hand to your nose or mouth. Frequent hand washing and use of hand sanitizer is highly recommended. Face mask purchased at the store (not medical) will not filter the virus. But are still helpful in controlling droplets from your nose reaching the areas and people around you and in keeping you from touching your nose with an infected hand.
