COVID-19: Practical Tips to Staying Safe

There’s no doubt about it. The COVID-19 disease has caused quite a disruption to our lives as we know it, and sadly, the number of cases and deaths are on the rise. In Spite of this, many countries are taking small steps to reopen their economies at this time. Some are opening businesses, work from home orders are being lifted, and even schools are being reopened.

With these changes being made, it’s more important than ever to make every effort to keep yourself and loved ones safe. Remember, the virus isn’t gone, we’re just trying to adjust to life around it.

Here are four practical ways to stay safe as you navigate this situation.

  1. Keep your hands clean. Wash your hands regularly with soap and water, or clean with an alcohol-based sanitizer. Sanitizers should contain at least 60% alcohol, and you should wash your hands for at least 20 seconds.
  1. Clean high traffic surfaces. This includes areas such as kitchen seats and work desks. Clean them regularly with disinfectant.
  1. Avoid crowded areas when going out. This is especially vital for people over 60 years old and people with any underlying health problems.
  1. Avoid close contact with people who display flu-like symptoms, including coughing and sneezing. And be sure to wear a mask if you are displaying symptoms.

These are the simplest ways you can go about keeping yourself and your family safe. Also, try as best as possible to avoid touching your mouth, nose, and eyes.
