#Protectthevulnerable movement

SELF-ISOLATE TO SAVE LIVES

COVID-19 is highly contagious. Data shows that it is two times more communicable than the flu. It is thought to spread from person to person through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs/sneezes/spits, etc. You can then spread those infected droplets around and infect other people when you touch commonly used surfaces. According to the CDC, the incubation period (the time between when you contract a virus and when your symptoms start) for COVID-19 is anywhere between 2 – 14 days. This means you can be contagious and be spreading infected droplets yourself without even knowing it.

Not only do you want to protect yourself, but we are also asking that you self isolate/social distance to #ProtectTheVulnerable. Those of us who are at a higher risk of infection/severe illness rely on everyone else to follow medical professionals’ guidelines to stay healthy.

“Every time you decide

'it's okay' not to take precautions, you're

making me an unwilling

participant in your

game of Russian Roulette.

You're holding a gun

to my head every time

you [take a risk], and

soon, you're going to run out of blanks.”

“Because the truth is, there's no 'us' and 'you'...there's just

we. And we are

ALL vulnerable.

Scary...isn't it?”
