Key risk factors are clearly proximity to infected individuals but our own personal resilience can enhance our protection to becoming unwell....but what does this mean?
- Remembering and prompting self, family and colleagues to hand wash regularly and avoid shaking hands, kissing and touching.
- Maintain a positive attitude about one’s own personal risk of becoming infected, or one’s ability to manage the infection.
- Obtaining and understanding the available information about risk, severity and symptoms of Coronavirus, and being realistic and logical about these.
- Looking out for each other ,especially those already feeling unwell, those getting unwell or those mature in age.....self isolating can be a lonely process even though it’s needed.
Clearly we are in a very stressful situation that is likely to last several months. Our personal positive resilience coupled with supporting each other as best we can will help.
