Pandemic Safety Measures
Social distancing basically means keeping a safe distance between yourself and people not from your household. To practice social distancing, stay at least 6 feet (about 2 arms’ length) away from other people who are not from your household in both indoor and outdoor settings.
37 States in the U.S. now mandate face coverings in public. All states except Alaska, Arizona, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Mississippi, Missouri, Nebraska, Oklahoma, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee and Wyoming. Not wearing mandatory facemasks will get you a fine and/ or jail time. Most importantly, it could cause you or others to get sick with the Coronavirus.
According to the Centers For Disease Control. “COVID-19 spreads mainly from person to person through respiratory droplets. Respiratory droplets travels and lingers through the air when you talk, cough, sneeze, yell, or sing. These droplets can land in the mouths of people who are near you or they can breathe these droplets in.
Masks are a simple barrier to help prevent your respiratory droplets from reaching others. Studies show that masks reduce the spray of droplets when worn over the nose and mouth. A cloth mask offers some protection to you as well. How well it protects you from breathing in the virus likely depends on the fabrics used and how your mask is made (e.g. the type of fabric, the number of layers of fabric, how well the mask fits)”. Check your State’s guidelines on Facemask protection.
Wash Your Hands
It may be possible that a person can be infected by the Coronavirus by touching a surface or object that has the virus on it and then touching their own mouth and nose. Wash your hands throughout the day using soap and water for at least 20 seconds. It is especially important to wash your hands :
- Before eating or preparing food
- After using the restroom
- When caring for someone ill
- Before touching your face
- After touching your mask
- After leaving a public area
- When sneezing, blowing your nose or coughing
Hand sanitizer containing at least 60% alcohol can be used if soap and water is not available.
Clean And Disinfect Frequently Touched Areas
- Clean and frequently touched surfaces. Areas such as doorknobs, tables, desks, light switches, kitchen counter, toilets, sinks, phones, auto steering wheels, keyboards, etc.
- Use a detergent type product or soap and water to clean areas thoroughly. Then, disinfect areas with an EPA registered disinfectant.
- Use disinfectants such as Lysol, Clorox and Lonza products.
