We are acutely aware that many people seeking recovery from substance abuse and addiction may have weakened immune systems as a result of excessive drug or alcohol use.
Our facilities are fully equipped to handle any emergencies in case a person comes into contact with the virus, though we want to ensure all our of clients and potential clients that our staff has taken all precautions to guard against spreading the virus.
The most common symptoms of Coronavirus (COVID-19) include the following:
Severe illness in some cases
COVID-19, which can affect people of every nationality and race, spreads by unprotected exposure to people infected with the disease.
Transmission of COVID-19 from a sick person to a healthy person can happen in a number of different ways, including some of the following:
Touching infected surfaces or objects and then touching your mouth, nose or eyes before washing your hands
Droplets produced from an infected person’s sneeze or cough
Personal contact, such as handshakes, hugging or kissing, and even simply being in close proximity to someone who may or may not know they have the virus
“We are learning more each day about how easily the new coronavirus spreads and how long it takes for people to become sick,” writes the L.A. County Department of Health, which is a trusted source for information regarding COVID-19 and the ongoing public health issues.
Current medical data has reported that the elderly and those with existing medical conditions or compromised immune systems are at the greatest risk for the contracting the most severe form of the disease.
So far, young children and those with healthy immune systems have responded the best with mild to no symptoms.
Testing for coronavirus is similar to that for the flu, which is done with a nasal swab or sample of sputum (mucus coughed up from the lungs).
Preventing the Spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19) For Our Clients
Inspire Malibu is following all of the recommendations put into effect, and updated regularly by the CDC and L.A. County Department of Health (DHS).
We have also taken necessary precautions to prevent the spread of COVID-19, including screening current and potential future clients.
Our staff has been directed to question all new clients prior to admission into our facilities about their travel history, possible exposure to the disease and symptoms that may include fever, cough and shortness of breath.
Additionally, if you or someone you know is experiencing any of these symptoms, please make it known to our staff.
Recommendations from the CDC to prevent the spread of coronavirus include the following:
Wash hands frequently with soap and water for at least 20 seconds
Bump elbows as a greeting instead of shaking hands
Avoid crowded places
Sneeze or cough into the crook of the elbow or use tissue paper
