There has been some fear reaction locally regarding COVID-19 and the one DHMC employee, who travelled from Italy recently, testing positive for the virus. There is one “presumptive” case that had close personal contact with the first person.
Clients are cancelling sessions fearful of “things happening around there” which is exactly what the CDC and medical professionals do NOT want to happen. Baseless fear is more toxic, causing paranoia of germs and other people, than a virus, especially to a healthy human.
The below video is a smart, fact-based discussion of the virus and how to keep yourself from contracting or spreading it. Note: masks don’t work.
Also, if by any chance I am contacted by DHMC that I am named as a person that someone with the virus has come into contact with, I will be the first one to immediately self-quarantine and inform every one of my clients personally.
Please don’t let fear and paranoia rule your lives.
