Older Adults at Higher Risk
The CDC has identified older adults and people who have severe chronic medical conditions like heart, lung, or kidney disease at higher risk for more serious COVID-19 illness. According to the CDC, early data suggest older people are twice as likely to have serious COVID-19 illness.
This is likely because as people age, their immune systems change, making it harder for their body to fight off diseases and infection, and because many older adults are also more likely to have underlying health conditions that make it harder to cope with and recover from illness. Age increases the risk that the respiratory system or lungs will shut down when an older person has COVID-19 disease.
That’s why the CDC is recommending that people at higher risk take the following actions:
Stay at home as much as possible.
Make sure you have access to several weeks of medications, food, and supplies in case you need to stay home for prolonged periods of time.
When you go out in public, keep away from others who are sick, limit close contact, and wash your hands often.
If you are sick, call your provider before visiting your doctor.
PSC will continue to work closely with the Pasadena Public Health Department and the L.A. County Department of Public Health to monitor the latest developments about the Coronavirus (COVID-19) and keep our members and staff safe and healthy.
