July is Ultraviolet Safety Month and during this time, let’s remember how important it is to protect our eyes and skin from the side effects of UV rays.
Be Safe in the Sun
Too much ultraviolet radiation (UV) from sunlight is dangerous. Nearly half of UV radiation is received between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m., when the sun’s rays are the strongest.
Too much sun exposure can be harmful. It can lead to:
- Vision problems and damage to your eyes
- Suppression of the immune system
- Premature aging of the skin
- Skin cancer
Ways to protect your skin and eyes from the effects of UV radiation
Any time you head outdoors, make sure you have these four things:
- Long-sleeved shirt or sun-protective clothing. This also applies to babies and kids who are more sensitive
- Broad-spectrum sunscreen of SPF 30 or greater, and re-apply every two hours or 30 minutes before going outside
- A hat, the wider the brim the better, or an umbrella
- UV-protective sunglasses to protect the eyes
If possible, seek shade or shelter during peak sun exposure times, between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. Let’s stay safe, aware, and informed while outdoors this summer!
A step-by-step guide to doing an at-home COVID-19 rapid antigen test
Make sure to read the instructions on the box, some tests may vary in its instructions.
- Wash your hands thoroughly with soap.
- The kit comes with three main items: a collection swab, a test strip and a small vial of liquid.
- Open the collection swab and insert it into each nostril, rotating five (5) times against the inner wall. You should insert the swab ½ to ¾ of an inch into the nostrils.
- Open the large cap and insert your swab into the vial, then stir the swab for 30 sec.
- Squeeze the sides of the vial against the swab as you pull it out.
- Open the test strip. You’ll see that it has both a “C” and a “T,”.
- Open the smaller, top cap on the vial of liquid, then squeeze four (4) drops of your sample into the collection area of the strip.
- Set a timer for 15 minutes. Don’t disturb the test strip during this time.
- Read your test.

JWCH Institute, Inc., and our Wesley Health Centers are not-for-profit health centers. We understand that many of our patients have limited means to pay for medical care. Therefore, we have developed a Sliding Fee Scale Discount Program to determine the appropriate fee to charge patients depending on their ability to pay. Qualifying patients are based on income and family size, no other factors.
No one will be denied services due to inability to pay.
JWCH Institute, Inc., and our Wesley Health Centers provide a full discount to individuals and families with annual incomes at or below 100% of the Federal poverty guidelines. Individuals with incomes between 101% and 200% of poverty are charged fees in accordance with our Sliding Fee Discount Scale which is based on family size and income. These fee discounts apply to all JWCH Institute and our Wesley Health Centers Programs and Services.
