Home Care Tips To Help Seniors Seniors in Greater Lancaster, PA Stay Safe During COVID-19

Now more than ever, family caregivers must concentrate on the health and well-being of their senior family members. The CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) is continuously updating the information on the Coronavirus (COVID-19). The most important thing they have found is that COVID-19 spreads rapidly through communities, leaving serious illness and death in its wake.

Coronavirus can be spread by:

  • Person-to-person, especially people within six feet of one another.
  • COVID-19 can be spread through the air from a cough or sneeze and can linger there for three hours.
  • It can last up to three days on hard surfaces like metal.
