Knowing Your COVID-19 Risk
Humanity is astounding in its ability to push on and make progress. At the beginning of last year, we were faced with a deadly threat to the entire global population. I knocked us off our feet and did bring devastation to far too many. However, six months into 2021, we can look back at where we were and we see the light at the end of this tunnel. Vaccines are miraculously available to every American and the world is slowly resurfacing.
It’s wonderful to be able to see friends and family and to return to many of the things we used to consider normal. However, we still need to keep in mind that this fight is not yet over. Although we do have a vaccine and it is working, the threat of viral mutations still looms large and we still must alter our behaviors in some ways.
Vaccines, although effective and nearly perfect, don’t give 100% protection. We need a second course of action to go alongside vaccines. This course of action may simply be for each individual to learn and understand their personal risk level.
Fortunately, individuals can now take risk assessment tests from the comfort of their own homes. These tests are more accurate than standard methods and the results and detailed report is returned within 5-7 days.
Armed with this kind of information, individuals can decide what precautions they still need to use to keep from contracting and spreading the disease.
