Lizzo is making sure the hard-working medical staff are fed.
The “Truth Hurts” rapper joined the growing movement of community members delivering lunches to first responders and medical staff at war with the novel coronavirus. Lizzo, 31, bought lunch for medical staff at the University of Washington. The school’s official Twitter handle thanked Lizzo for her contributions.
The M Health Fairview University of Minnesota Medical Center also received goodies from the Grammy-winning rapper: “That moment when you’re working the ER and Lizzo surprises you by sending over some lunch!”
A number of people have been donating lunches to medical staff as they work diligently to fend off the spread of COVID-19 including Montreal Canadiens’ Jeff Petry.
Questions about COVID-19? Here are some things you need to know:
Health officials caution against all international travel. Returning travellers are asked to self-isolate for 14 days in case they develop symptoms and to prevent spreading the virus to others.
Symptoms can include fever, cough and difficulty breathing — very similar to a cold or flu. Some people can develop a more severe illness. People most at risk of this include older adults and people with severe chronic medical conditions like heart, lung or kidney disease. If you develop symptoms, contact public health authorities.
To prevent the virus from spreading, experts recommend frequent handwashing and coughing into your sleeve. They also recommend minimizing contact with others, staying home as much as possible and maintaining a distance of two metres from other people if you go out.
