+ How to Keep a Fever Log: The most common symptom of COVID-19 is a fever, and sometime it is intermittent and low-grade. You can track your body temperature and be the first to spot a fever by keeping a fever log at home—taking your temperature four times a day every day and writing it down to track any slight increases or sustained fevers.
+ How to Wash a Face Mask: You can re-use a medical mask with proper cleaning. Do not re-use otherwise. To clean, completely soak the mask in 70%+ isopropyl alcohol; once it is fully wet, remove and hang dry. Don't squeeze or wring. Inspect mask and then store in a baggies until next use, marking each time you re-sterilize so you can keep track.
Resources by Region
+ New Jersey: We’ve made a Google Doc with resources for surviving potential (non-medical) coronavirus crises. It’s geared for people to help those directly around them, on a block-by-block level, during coronavirus. You can sign up to help deliver meals to people who might need them in the coming weeks, or even tell us about people who need help with food. There’s also resources we’ve found about applicable NJ employment laws. More will be added as we come across it. Share it anywhere you think it can help. Look after your people, everyone!
