You’re probably taking extra precautions these days, from wearing masks and gloves to purchasing extra cleaning and sanitizing products.
Practicing proper social distancing and being extra cautious helps you protect yourself and your home from the Coronavirus.
Below are several Centers for Disease Control (CDC) tips to protect yourself and others from COVID-19.
Tip #1: Wash your hands—often
Washing your hands often helps remove any lingering germs. This is especially important to do after you cover a cough or sneeze, blow your nose, or have been in a public space.
The CDC recommends washing your hands for at least 20 seconds with soap and water. They also note that if soap and water aren’t readily available, you can rub hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol on your hands until they feel dry.
Tip #2: Avoid close contact with others
Avoiding close contact with others, especially those who are more susceptible to getting sick, helps reduce the spread of COVID-19. This is why social distancing and stay-at-home orders are so important to follow during this time.
Tip #3: Feeling under the weather? Stay home!
This is a general rule of thumb, but if you are not feeling well, you should avoid leaving your home because you’re more susceptible and it helps reduce spreading germs to those around you.
Tip #4: Cover your coughs and sneezes
If you feel a sneeze or a tickle in your throat, you should cover your nose and mouth with a tissue or sneeze and cough into your elbow. Throw the soiled tissue in the trash and wash your hands for 20 seconds with soap and water or sanitizer right after.
Tip #5: Clean and disinfect regularly
Along with regular hand washing and proper social distancing, regularly cleaning and disinfecting high-touch surfaces, such as switches, countertops, and phones, will help reduce the spread of COVID-19
