The CDC has determined that COVID-19 is a serious public health threat.
People living with diabetes are at greater risk of complications when dealing with viral infections. It is important to have a plan in place, in case of exposure.
The ADA has outlined safety precautions to take, based on advisements from the CDC, for people living with diabetes against the Corona Virus.
To prevent exposure, the CDC advises taking the same precautions as for the flu, such as washing your hands frequently and covering your mouth with a tissue or your elbow when you cough or sneeze. Other recommendations outlined cover which foods to keep on hand in case of a dip in blood sugar and other helpful supplies that can aid people living with diabetes in the event of exposure.
