What You Need to Know About the Coronavirus (COVID-19)
With COVID-19 on the forefront of nearly everyone’s minds, SCDAA wants to provide information from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) to our sickle cell community. Educating yourself about the coronavirus reduces anxiety and empowers you to prevent and protect yourself – and your family – from getting sick. The potential health risk posed by COVID-19 globally is evolving constantly, so the risk assessment to our communities here in the United States may change in the upcoming weeks and months. It is therefore critical that you stay regularly informed.
Where can I find the best up to date information?
Go to the CDC’s website (www.cdc.gov/covid19) for regular updates on the COVID-19. Information is updated routinely and will keep you abreast of the latest guidelines and recommendations.
