RICHMOND, Va. -- Richmond Window Corporation is helping the Ricky Johnson and Friends Foundation help others during the COVID-19 crisis.

"Richmond Window Corporation saw a recent news story on your broadcast station about how the Ricky Johnson and Friends Foundation had their catalytic converters stolen from their vans," a company spokesperson wrote to CBS 6. "These vans are used for delivering supplies to people in the community. When we saw this, we reached out to the foundation. Just yesterday, our organization delivered 100 care packages, in partnership with the Ricky Johnson and Friends Foundation to frontline healthcare workers, fire stations, and the Henrico police department. This project is part of our effort to help empower the community that has helped build our company for over 66 years -- especially during this uncertain time."

Richmond Window Corporation vowed to help the Ricky Johnson and Friends Foundation at least once a week.

Most patients with COVID-19 have mild to moderate symptoms. However, in a small proportion of patients, COVID-19 can lead to more severe illness, including death, particularly among those who are older or those who have chronic medical conditions.

COVID-19 spreads primarily through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes.

Symptoms include fever, cough, and difficulty breathing. Symptoms appear within 14 days of being exposed to an infectious person.

Virginia health officials urged the following precautions:

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
  • Use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer only if soap and water are not available.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or your sleeve (not your hands) when coughing or sneezing.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.Stay home when you are sick.
  • Avoid contact with sick people.Avoid non-essential travel.
