The Corona Virus and other Sicknesses

At a time of year when numerous illnesses are abroad – most particularly the Corona virus that threatens to reach pandemic proportions – people should use common sense in their day-to-day activities. A few simple procedures can reduce considerably risks of contamination:

i) Wash hands regularly using soap and warm water;
ii) Ensure all hard surfaces that are frequently touched, such as door handles, hand rails, taps, etc, are cleaned regularly with a household detergent or antiseptic wipes.
iii) Do not cough and sneeze directly into your hands use tissues and dispose of them afterwards. iv) Avoid as much as possible making contact with your face. If you feel the symptoms of flu or virus it is advised that you do not visit the sick to avoid compromising both your own health and the health of the person you are visiting or their families.

Remember, those who have flu are under no obligation to go to Mass. If you have flu-like symptoms please stay at home, rest, stay well hydrated and, if necessary, seek your doctor’s help.

Mass is available daily via different internet websites and on the Catholic Channel, EWTN.
