Coronavirus Information from CNY Latino

Welcome to the CNY Latino Coronavirus reference page.

This page was designed and created to provide pertinent information about this epidemic, with emphasis to the Latino population, and focused with the Central New York State area (between Albany & Rochester AND Watertown & Binghamton, and all the towns/cities in between).

The content and material placed in here, is complimented with the April 2020 edition of the CNY Latino newspaper at cnylatinonewspaper.com, and also referenced in the programming of our weekly “Spanish” Radio show, every Wednesday from 5:30 to 6:30 PM at wvoaradio.com during the months of April and May 2020.

We tried to put together a compendium of references as accurately as possible.

However, if there are any discrepancies, wrong links, or inaccurate or MISSING information, please, let us know by sending an email to info@cnylatino.com

Albany Med is continuing to work closely with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the New York State Department of Health (NYSDOH) and other local health departments to actively monitor and respond to this rapidly changing situation. We are prepared for COVID-19. We are committed to the health and safety of our patients, visitors and workforce. Experts from across the medical center have been meeting daily to evolve our planning efforts and ensure that all staff and resources are in place, ready to protect our community. Albany Med is not currently conducting COVID-19 community testing. In an effort to conserve supplies, we will only test symptomatic Albany Med health care workers, first responders with high-risk exposure to the virus and the inpatient population at Albany
Med under investigation for COVID-19.

COVID-19 Test Results – If you were tested for COVID-19 at Albany Med and your results are negative, you will be notified by phone from Albany Med or Albany County. Patients with positive results will also receive a phone call with information about next steps. Please do not call Albany Med. If you have not yet received a call, the results are still pending.

Information for the Community – People who are exhibiting symptoms of COVID-19, but who have not been determined by a doctor to require hospital care, are advised to follow the recommended 14-day home quarantine and any treatment regimen recommended by their doctor

Symptoms – Patients with COVID-19 have had mild to severe respiratory illness with symptoms of:
• Fever
• Cough
• Shortness of breath
• Pneumonia

If you suspect you are sick with COVID-19, follow the steps below to care for yourself and help prevent the disease from spreading to other people:
• Stay home except to get medical care and separate yourself from other people and animals in your home.
• Call your health care provider if your illness is worsening. They will give you instructions on how to get care without exposing others.
• Cover your coughs and sneezes.
• Clean your hands often.
• If you are ill with fever, cough or shortness of breath, call ahead to our care sites.

The CDC has the most current information about the virus, including everything you need to know about how the virus spreads, how it’s treated, how to protect yourself, and what to do if you get sick.

Protect Yourself – Regular hand washing remains one of the best defenses against COVID-19 and other respiratory illnesses, including seasonal flu. People can help protect themselves from respiratory illness with everyday preventive actions:
• Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. Use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol if soap and water are not available.
• Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
• Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.

Protect Others
• Stay home when you are sick or as designated by the state of New York. Follow your doctor’s instructions about quarantine measures.
• Cover your cough or sneeze with your sleeve (not your hands) or a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
• Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.
