Please Take The Coronavirus Serious! There are many strains of Covid-19 and as DJ Mell Starr says “I Wouldn’t Wish This Virus Upon My Worst Enemy”. DJ Mell Starr & other coronavirus survivors in the DJ community described their experience battling Covid-19 during a Live Zoom Meeting with the International DJ Cafe Network last week. The purpose of the meeting was to raise awareness & educate our fellow DJs about the dangers of this deadly disease. COVID-19 is caused by the coronavirus and it affects everyone in different ways. Symptoms may appear within 2-14 days after exposure to the virus and infected people can experience a wide range of symptoms from mild to severe illness.

During the grueling fight with Covid-19, many of our DJ peers who contracted the virus had to endure more than 2 weeks of constant headaches, chills, cold sweats, fevers up to 108, no appetite, dry mouth, no taste buds, numbness, excessive mucus & coughing, tremendous breathing restrictions, isolation, extreme fatigue, the feeling of all your nerves on the outside of your body, and just when you think you feel better it hits you again like a ton of bricks. Trust Me, this is definitely not the kind of party that any of us want to attend! As advised, please stay home as much as possible and protect yourself & others while in public.

Please be sure to always consult with a physician for medical advice, follow the recommended Covid-19 CDC Guidelines, and use the helpful tips below for DJs to stay safe during this deadly pandemic.
