Due to recommendations from New York City Department of Health and the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the Brooklyn Young Republican Club will be transitioning our Wednesday, March 25 “Women’s History Month: Advancing HerStory” panel to online streaming platforms: Facebook, Twitch, and YouTube. During our time of social distancing, we think it’s important to continue our celebration of Women’s History Month and continue to drive conversation on important issues.
According to the New York City Department of Health, “Limiting the number of people who congregate and interact with one another within a facility and allowing more physical space between people can help to curb spread of this infection.” We want to do our part to mitigate exposure and transmission of COVID-19.
INFORMATION TO PROTECT AND UNDERSTAND COVID-19 BELOW:
How does COVID-19 spread?
• The virus can spread to people who are in close contact (within about 6 feet) with an infected person when that person coughs or sneezes.
• The virus is spreading between people with no link to travel or to another positive case.
• Scientists disagree on how long COVID-19 lives on surfaces, but it can live on surfaces that people frequently touch. The virus can then be spread if someone touches their eyes, nose or mouth with unwashed hands.
• Public health officials are still learning about the virus that causes COVID-19, but it is believed that people who are experiencing symptoms (coughing and sneezing) are most likely to transmit the virus to others.
Stop The Spread
We are exceptionally grateful to the New York City Department of Health for their meticulous and careful guidance during this State of Emergency.
