Remember to take critical preventive actions that are always recommended to prevent the spread of respiratory viruses. These include, but not limited to:

  • Avoid close contact with sick people
  • While sick, limit contact with others as much as possible
  • Stay home if you are sick.  If you have Highmark/Blue Cross Blue Shield insurance coverage through Guidestone, all copays, deductibles for telemedicine are waived for the next 90 days (beginning March 18, 2020).
  • Cover your nose and mouth when you cough or sneeze. Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands; germs spread this way
  • Clean and disinfect surfaces and objects that may be contaminated with germs
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand rub with at least 60% alcohol
