His first FAQ is below; feel free to submit your questions for Dr. Gogan via Survey Monkey or email to DMMI_Communications@denso-diam.com.
I feel overwhelmed by the amount of information about COVID-19. Dr. Gogan, what would you recommend are the most important ways to stay safe?
Remaining safe and healthy is the highest priority for everyone individually, for your family, and the communities we live in. Company initiatives can help keep reduce the risk of exposure but it is critically important to also stress individual accountability. All of us need to be vigilant regarding the public health recommendations to avoid going to work if you are ill, exercise appropriate social distancing, and using appropriate hand and respiratory (cough) hygiene. Following these recommendations is of paramount importance in this stressful time to do what you can to protect yourself, your family, and your co-workers.
