With the current COVID-19 pandemic that’s spreading worldwide, the thoughts of many are turned toward the health and safety of themselves and their loved ones.
We’re still awaiting the development of a vaccine to prevent coronavirus. While individuals with underlying medical conditions and older adults are more at risk for developing serious complications related to COVID-19, it’s clear that the virus is affecting people of all ages.
Even those who may not experience symptoms or even know they’re infected can still be carriers of coronavirus that spread the illness to others through close contact—particularly droplets when they cough or sneeze.
Prevent COVID-19 From Spreading
According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, the most effective way to prevent illness is by taking precautions to avoid exposure to the coronavirus. This is not only important for your own health but for that of those around you.
The CDC also recommends washing your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. This is especially important after being in a public place, coughing or sneezing, or using the restroom. Although soap and water are the most effective, hand sanitizer containing a minimum of 60% alcohol is also sufficient.
Also be intentional about not touching your face—including eyes, nose, and mouth. Avoid contact with sick individuals and maintain a distance of 6 feet between yourself and others. If you must go to a public place like a grocery store or pharmacy, wear a mask.
Disinfect Surfaces Frequently
Social distancing is crucial to help stop the spread of coronavirus. But with more time spent at home, it’s important to make sure the environment is safe.
The CDC advises frequent disinfecting of surfaces like cell phones, computer keyboards, doorknobs, light switches, countertops, faucets, and more. Doing so can help prevent the spread of viruses and bacteria in your home.
