As of March 17th, 2020, Battlefield Ministries, Inc. is offering virtual (video chat or phone) sessions for clients seeking counseling or seeking to continue counseling for the month of March. We hope to resume in-person meetings sometime in April 2020.
The staff at Battlefield Ministries, Inc. are listening to the reports via the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Georgia Department of Public Health (DPH), and the World Health Organization (WHO). As the virus and protocols around the outbreak are evolving, we are working to protect our clients and staff.
If you are concerned you may have a serious infectious disease, your best course of action is to contact your primary care physician’s office and follow their directives. Like other viruses and colds, the coronavirus is spread from person-to-person via respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes. It can also be spread by touching a contaminated surface or object and then touching your nose/eyes/mouth. Handwashing, alcohol-based sanitizers, and avoiding touching your face are your best strategies for prevention. There is still quite a bit of influenza activity which is presently more of a threat than the coronavirus. If you have not yet received a flu shot, it is not too late and is still recommended by the CDC.
Again, this is an evolving situation, and the team at Battlefield Ministries, Inc. will be closely monitoring it and providing our clients and staff with updates.
