This is a frightening time in history as the world is faced with Covid-19, a highly contagious virus. There are several measures that you can take to protect yourself and those you love from contracting it. Here are a few that you can follow.
Wash your hands frequently to ward off hand germs. If you are away from a sink and soap, you can use hand sanitizer to do the same thing. It should have over sixty percent of alcohol content to be effective. Wipe down surfaces that others have been in contact with. This can be done with detergent and water or with an antibacterial wipe. If you have been around others for a long period of time or were with someone who has Covid-19, take a shower when you get home and clean your clothes immediately.
Remain at home as much as possible. If you have a job that allows you to work from home, make the arrangements to do so. Stay six feet apart from others when you are required to leave your house. Consider ordering items on the internet to be delivered to your home or opt for curbside delivery instead of going inside a store to do your shopping. Avoid restaurants, malls, or bars where large amounts of people gather.
Cover Your Face
If you must leave your house, cover your face with a mask. You can purchase a box of paper ones to wear if they are available. You can also sew cloth masks for yourself and your family if you have a sewing machine and fabric. There are many patterns on the internet with instructions to follow to help you do this. There are also many craft websites that sell fun, colorful cloth masks if you are unable to do so and want one that is comfortable and soft.
