As of 7:00 PM yesterday evening, the State reports there are 13,906 positive cases and 287 deaths from Covid-19.
As you and everyone else already know, business are shut down, there is a shelter-in-place order and life as we know it, has changed.
Covid-19 is a virus that affects your respiratory system. It is transferred just like any contagious virus. Radon is a naturally occurring gas, you can’t see, smell or taste that affects your respiratory system. They both damage the lungs directly and both can be deadly.
Covid-19 is dangerous and isn’t something to be taken lightly. Neither is Radon. Unlike Covid-19, Radon isn’t talked about on a minute-to-minute basis. In Texas especially, it seems no one even knows it exists. Radon kills over 21,000 people a year and there are countless that go unknown because smoking can skew the results.
We want everyone to be safe and stay at home. We also want everyone to have their home tested for Radon. Considering you are spending quite a lot more time there, it would be well worth knowing if you have elevated levels of Radon. Please call me to schedule a test today and stay safe.
