What is COVID-19?
Many of us have been introduced to the COVID-19 epidemic via news outlets and across social media. But do we really know what it is?
As explained by the Government of the District of Columbia, the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) is “a new strain of coronavirus that has not been previously identified in humans.” Indicators can range from mild, cold-like symptoms to great respiratory distress. Common symptoms include fever, cough, and shortness of breath. With the ever-changing information about the spread of COVID-19, it is best to stay informed where you can, and keep in mind good hygiene practices and listening to CDC guidelines.
At Childers Air Plumbing & Electric, we are taking this pandemic very seriously. While our technicians are still available 24/7 to provide the same quality service, we are no longer accepting customers in our office. We apologize for any inconvenience.
