4 Things to Watch Out For During the COVID-19 Quarantine

April 21st, 2020

As of Monday, April 20, there are 1,035 confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Monroe County alone. Sadly, these wild times have all of Rochester anxious, with the majority of people either out of work or working from home. Also, social distancing with PPE gear and self-quarantine are being encouraged all over Rochester, New York, and the entire country.

Though it’s important to spend time having fun with your family so you’re not all just constantly worrying, you still need to be careful about a few things. Here are a few things that you should watch out for during this year’s national quarantine:

Your family’s health

First and foremost, you need to prioritize the health of yourself and your entire family. You should be doing this anyway, but it’s imperative to constantly monitor the health of your household during these wild times. Since COVID-19 can be easily spread and can even be asymptomatic, you need to remain vigilant. Pay attention to any warning signs like body aches, fatigue, dry cough, etc. And if you suspect yourself, your spouse, or your children are suffering from this virus at all — be sure to seek out professional help.

Though you can’t exactly head to your doctor’s office during these quarantined times, you can still communicate with a healthcare professional via telehealth platforms. Additionally, if you notice severe signs and you’re really concerned, you can head to a local testing site.

According to Spectrum News, Coronavirus antibody testing is now being done at Wegmans on East Ave. In addition to the East Ave location, four Wegmans locations are among 20 New York grocery stores picked by the state for antibody testing.

Beware of radon exposure

Being exposed to radon for a long period of time can lead to lung cancer. In fact, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Surgeon General’s Office have estimated that as many as 20,000 lung cancer deaths are caused each year by radon. Radon gas in the air breaks down into tiny radioactive elements (radon progeny) that can lodge in the lining of the lungs, where they can give off radiation. COVID-19 already impacts the respiratory system, so it’s essential to keep your lungs healthy and strung during these times.

Misusing prescription pain pills

Rochester has been in quarantine for a few weeks and it seems like it’s not going to end anytime soon. Across the city, people are always experiencing chronic pain, headaches, and plenty of other issues. Though a pain pill here or there can be helpful, abusing these drugs can lead to all kinds of horrible issues. Sadly, 2 million Americans misuse prescription pain drugs. Even if you’re in pain, try and do everything you can to alleviate that pain without relying on prescription pills. Contact your doctor if you’re struggling.

Signs of domestic violence

If you’re worried about your partner becoming violent to you or your kids — or you’ve already experienced physical harm, contact the authorities. There are 17,985 U.S. police agencies in the U.S. which include City Police Departments, County Sheriff’s Offices, State Police/Highway Patrol and Federal Law Enforcement Agencies.

Do everything you can to keep your family healthy, engaged, and happy during this quarantine. Good luck and stay safe!
