Update on Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19)
At this moment we have too many questions unanswered.
Here are just a few:
Should we all stay at home?
Should our lives go on?
Should we stock water, toilet paper?
Should our kids stop going to school?
Are people already creating a stigma towards some races?
Is it going to end humanity?
Who is actually dying? Only old people with a history of other diseases?
Is media overreacting and causing panic?
Is it just a flu virus?
Should all the businesses close? Schools? Churches?
How many people die per year from the flu?
Are the governments using the right protocol?
Is it true that kids don’t get this virus?
We cannot answer them all, we can have some ideas about it, but the best thing is to use the best judgment to do our homework and research about all the questions we have but please, only read articles backed up by science or from a legit science website.
Here at Sampa, we are following CDC instructions, we are continuing cleaning the mats every day with hospital disinfectant something that we have done for years. We are enforcing proper hygiene from the kids and more hand sanitizers spread out around the gym as well as CDC posts that educate them.
Even the theme of this next two weeks is health for a health badge, we are working with the parents to keep our kids healthier and don’t contract any virus, fungus or bacteria.
At the end of the day, it will be your call and your beliefs that will guide your life and if you do not want to come to practice during this period we will respect that.
I hope soon humanity will overcome this chaos, meanwhile, let’s use our best judgment.
