June 21, 2021

Boyd Nursing and Rehab is pleased to recognize Mr. Lymon Wilburn as our patient success story for this month!

Mr. Wilburn came to Boyd Nursing in a few months ago following a medically complicated hospitalization with multiple cardiac issues. Lymon presented to us with significant weakness, limited mobility, and difficulty performing basic activities of daily living. After the past 2 months of nursing care, skilled therapy services, dietary management, and a strong will to get better, Lymon has made a remarkable recovery!

He has made significant improvements with ambulation using an assisted device and his ability to perform his self-care with supervision assistance. Lymon is looking forward to further progress with therapy services in order to soon return to community living, thanks to the care he has received at Boyd Nursing and Rehab. Congratulations Lymon, we are very happy to have had to opportunity to assist you on this road to recovery. We wish you the very best!

How COVID-19 Spreads

June 18, 2021

COVID-19 spreads when an infected person breathes out droplets and very small particles that contain the virus. These droplets and particles can be breathed in by other people or land on their eyes, noses, or mouth. In some circumstances, they may contaminate surfaces they touch. People who are closer than 6 feet from the infected person are most likely to get infected. 

COVID-19 is spread in three main ways: 

  • Breathing in air when close to an infected person who is exhaling small droplets and particles that contain the virus. 
  • Having these small droplets and particles that contain virus land on the eyes, nose, or mouth, especially through splashes and sprays like a cough or sneeze. 
  • Touching eyes, nose, or mouth with hands that have the virus on them.

Fully Vaccinated? What You Should Keep Doing:

June 4, 2021

For now, if you’ve been fully vaccinated: 

  • You will still need to follow guidance at your workplace and local businesses. 
  • If you travel, you should still take steps to protect yourself and others
  • Masks are required on planes, buses, trains, and other forms of public transportation traveling into, within, or out of the United States and in U.S. transportation hubs such as airports and stations. Travelers are not required to wear a mask in outdoor areas of a conveyance (like on a ferry or the top deck of a bus). CDC recommends that travelers who are not fully vaccinated continue to wear a mask and maintain physical distance when traveling. 
  • Fully vaccinated international travelers arriving in the United States are still required to get tested 3 days before travel by air into the United States (or show documentation of recovery from COVID-19 in the past 3 months) and should still get tested 3-5 days after their trip. 
  • You should still watch out for symptoms of COVID-19, especially if you’ve been around someone who is sick. If you have symptoms of COVID-19, you should get tested and stay home and away from others. 
  • People who have a condition or are taking medications that weaken the immune system, should continue to take all precautions recommended for unvaccinated people until advised otherwise by their healthcare provider.
