Strategies To Protect Yourself and Others From COVID

OLLI at WVU will host a presentation on strategies for decreasing the risk of COVID-19 infection and illness including an N-95 mask workshop. The workshop will be led by Dr. Tim Nurkiewicz, and Dr. Bill Ramsey, at the Mountaineer Mall in Morgantown and on Zoom. The workshop is free and open to the public.

Wednesday, April 5, at 11:00 AM
at the the Mountaineer Mall and on Zoom.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, seniors are at higher risk for COVID-19 infection. The U.S. COVID-19 death rate is currently 344 per day, hospitalizations are 3,504 per day, and diagnosed cases are 33,733 per day, with 99% of cases occurring among those over 65. COVID-19 ranks as the sixth leading cause of death in the U.S.   

Experts agree the COVID-19 vaccine is the most important strategy for preventing serious illness; however, if worn correctly, an N-95 mask can be an effective method to help decrease the transmission of COVID-19.  WVU experts Drs. Nurkiewicz and Ramsey will direct participants in properly wearing the N-95 mask. They will provide additional information about how to keep out of harm’s way, the importance of testing if one is experiencing symptoms, and the benefits of medical treatments once diagnosed.

Prior registration is encouraged.
