Make your Plan Today!
National Preparedness Month (NPM) is recognized each September to promote family and community disaster planning now and throughout the year. As our nation continues to respond to COVID-19, there is no better time to be involved this September.
The 2020 NPM theme is:
"Disasters Don’t Wait. Make Your Plan Today."
Take Care of Yourself, Stay Educated on the Pandemic
Keep informed on how to keep your family,your business and yourself healthy during the pandemic. Remember:
-Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
-When you are sick, keep your distance from others to protect them from getting sick too.
-Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when coughing or sneezing. It may prevent those around you from getting sick.
-Washing your hands often will help protect you from germs.
-Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth.
-Practice other good health habits. Get plenty of sleep, be physically active, manage your stress, drink plenty of fluids, and eat nutritious food.
