Dr. Fred Campbell explains what it means to be under self-quarantine and reminds people to use common sense during the coronavirus pandemic.
Dr. Campbell said social distancing is critically important during this time.
“Social distancing may make the difference between the COVID-19 virus overwhelming our health care system in the United States and being able to handle any serious cases that we have,” said Campbell.
He said when people voluntarily go under self-quarantine, they must stay away from people especially a high-risk person, like an elderly individual or someone with a low immune system.
“The way one can assist in the self-quarantine effort is maybe one family member goes out as seldom as possible to pick up things like food and other needed items, and not having an entire group or family going out to do those things,” Campbell said.
