Important Updated Links on the Coronavirus
Needless to say, there has been a tremendous about of information thrown at the general public and business community in recent days that can seem to confuse. The progressive nature of this virus is causing the news, health instructions and government actions to change daily. As an example, do we stay 3feet, 6feet or 10feet apart? Are we all self-quarantining or just some.
Many have heard that there are actual cases in their community, only to find out it was just the rumor mill. Some have even been told that the virus can be transmitted in normal drinking water, which is absolutely a falsehood according to the Center for Disease Control, (CDC).
The list goes on and on. Our blog’s purpose is to give our customers and community the ability to continually find up-to-date and as accurate information as possible from recognized sources as this pandemic continues over the next several weeks or months.

Safety Steps You Can Take for Business & Family
Remember – this is a marathon in preparedness – not a sprint.
Safety Preparedness are words seldom spoken in most family or business gatherings. At least not until the crisis arises. At Helppro1 we often write and notify about the upcoming seasonal storm season and various reasons to prepare. But we never expected in our lifetime to be using such words are ‘global pandemic’ in our writings.
It is always more difficult to prepare for the “storm” when you are in the midst of it. Yet, there are things that can and should be done on a frequent and regular basis. The above graphic from PA Gov addresses some of those needs. Logical sensible everyday needs. No hoarding needed.
Thankfully, depending on your immediate location, most of these are presently still available either in local markets or on-line. Most thankfully, we do not have to gather these items in the midst of winter.
Although precautions should always be noted depending on your locale and method of pick-up or delivery. You should still be well ahead of the curve if you gather such before April 1st.
Please remember, no hoarding is needed.

In closing, please remember one very important thing at this time, a Pandemic does not equate to Death.

Again, if you have concerns or mental anguish, please be sure your information is correct by referring to the above sites we have listed. Above all if you are secluded or isolated – be sure to reach out and talk to those that know you. Communications is sometimes just the medicine we need. Be Safe.
