Steps Fibromyalgia London Group is taking/advising to ensure the safety and well-being of all members due to Coronavirus (COVID-19):

1.Wash your hands often and with soap for approx. 20-30 seconds (count or sing a song to time it). The average person touches their face anywhere from 15-50 times an hour, while it’s impossible to wash your hands each time, be aware when you are doing it. Ways to stop touching your face include but are not limited to: be aware of triggers that could be making you touch your face and avoid them. Do something else with your hands. In a world with more people this is a good habit to break. #WashYourHands After washing your hands #safehands remember your phone carries germs too!

2. Use alcohol-based hand sanitizer when you’re not able to wash your hands.

3. No contact. Please, no hugs, handshakes – let a smile be your expression of affection or respect. Just smile and wave, smile and wave!

4. Don’t panic, be cautious. If you have traveled to a COVID-19 hot-spot in the past 14 days, please do not attend FLG events. If you have a cough, flu-like symptoms, whether or not you’ve been traveling, see a doctor; better safe than sorry. Also, wear a mask so you don’t spread any illness to others.

5. Use common sense, if you’re sick, don’t go out (self-isolate, take some “me” time). If you’re worried about getting sick, talk to professionals, do not rely on medical information on the internet.

We will continue to monitor the situation day-by-day. Please keep checking back here for updates. https://fibrolondongroup.ca/
