It’s been more than a year since the COVID-19 pandemic began, and at Wellstar Health System, we understand many people may feel frustrated. For a moment, life seemed to be getting back to normal, but now it feels as though we’re back at the start.
However, we can’t give up the fight. As the Delta variant and other strains of the virus emerge and spread, it’s time to take action.
We have to rise up and take COVID-19 down. It’s up to all of us to make well happen.
That’s because just as much as saving lives and fighting illness happens every day at Wellstar, creating a healthy world starts with you. And right now, we have hope through new, life-saving tools to defeat the virus.
Here’s how to do your part to make well happen:
- Get the COVID-19 vaccine to stick it to COVID and help stop the spread of the virus.
- Schedule a wellness exam with your Wellstar primary care provider to stay on top of your health.
- Wear a mask to help protect yourself and others. Keep in mind, COVID-19 is a respiratory illness and highly transmissible through the air. Wearing a mask can help reduce community spread, even if you are fully vaccinated against COVID-19.
- Wash your hands often for 20 seconds to rid your hands of viruses, bacteria and other harmful germs that are easily spread by touching.
- Watch your distance around other to avoid community spread of COVID-19.
While these actions may seem small, they have a huge impact when it comes to keeping Georgia safe and healthy.
Right now, people who are unvaccinated and children under the age of 12 who aren’t eligible to receive the vaccine are at risk. Vulnerable members of the community are counting on us to step up and get vaccinated.
Together, we can help save lives and keep each other safe.
