The patients were a 45-year-old male and an 81-year-old female. Our heartfelt condolences go out to their families and friends.
Please take infection control measures seriously. Stop spreading germs to those at risk for deadly complications from an infection.”
Nassau County Emergency Management:
Below is a Coronavirus breakdown showing 18 reported cases on August 16.
- Another 18 positive cases in Nassau. We have community transmission. Plenty of asymptomatic people are spreading the virus to others through:
direct contact (e.g. hugs, kisses, handshakes)
- close contact, closer than 6-feet for more than a few minutes (e.g. expelled droplets from spit, coughs, conversations during break-time, or singing together at choir practice), and
- indirect contact (e.g. touching random items with dirty hands, items that others touch later, and then touch their eyes, nose, or mouth)
You have germs that can make other people sick, and only you are responsible for keeping them to yourself. Cover your mouth and nose when you cough or sneeze or expel droplets any other way. Wash your hands with soap and water before you touch anything anyone else might touch. Stay home if you might be infectious, especially if you have a fever (have you checked your temperature?) or feel sick.
Don’t get physically close to people you don’t live with – infections spread easily between co-workers and friends/family/visitors. Keep your distance and stay safe.
