Staying Healthy & Avoiding the Spread of Germs

3/16/2020 (Permalink)

There has been quite a bit of buzz lately about health concerns and how to prevent them. We have compiled some tips from reputable sources for ways to keep yourself and those around you safe and healthy.

  • Clean your hands thoroughly and often.
      • Effectively washing your hands is the best (and easiest) way to prevent illness and infections. Wet your hands and wrists, then apply soap. Scrub hands for at least 20 seconds until the soap gets bubbly. Remove jewelry to clean underneath it. Rinse hands clean, dry with a clean paper towel, and do not touch the sink and faucets directly after washing. Use the paper towel to turn off the faucet and open the door. (Don’t forget to avoid touching your face!)
  • If you don’t have soap, use hand sanitizer.
      • Take about a dime-size dollop in your hand and cover the whole surface; front and back. Rub it in until hands are dry.
  • Put distance between yourself and other people.
      • Stay home except to get medical care. Avoid going to work, school, or public areas if it is possible. Avoid using public transportation as well. It could also be beneficial to not share personal items.
  • Use protective gear when you feel it’s necessary.
      • If you are cleaning or coming into contact with something that could infect you with the virus, you should wear the proper gear. Facemasks and gloves are very helpful if they are available to you.
  • Keep germs to yourself.
      • Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when sneezing, coughing or blowing your nose. You can also use the inside of your elbow. Discard used tissues in the trash as soon as you can. Always wash your hands after sneezing, blowing your nose, or coughing, or after touching used tissues or handkerchiefs.
  • Make sure to clean and sanitize your home.
    • Clean countertops, telephones, toys, cups, or bathroom sinks, and all other surfaces that come into contact with people who could be carrying a virus.
