Coronavirus Prevention Tips

Staying safe during the virus outbreak should extend to more than just your workplace. There are several things you can do at home and in your daily life to stay safe and limit the reach of coronavirus!

  • Limit human contact. Health organizations around the globe are urging people to isolate themselves from others as much as possible, given that COVID-19, like any other virus, is spread primarily through contact with others. If you want to stay safe, limit your trips out of the home to only essential business, like buying groceries or going to work. Ask your employer if you can work from home!
  • Clean your home regularly and thoroughly. The coronavirus is a particularly hardy virus, able to live on surfaces it has been transferred to for several days. Therefore, it’s incredibly important to regularly disinfect the surfaces in your home, from countertops to doorknobs. You may also want to do laundry more often to be extra safe! 
  • Get in the washing habit. You should wash your hands regularly during this virus outbreak, but you should also be sure to clean other things you come into contact with. We encourage you to wash any food you buy before eating it, as well as the cups and dishes you use. 
  • Practice social distancing. In addition to skin contact, coronavirus can also be spread via the air in some cases. While scientists are not classifying it as an airborne illness, they do note that it can be transferred from one person to another via the breath. It’s recommended that you strive to maintain at least six feet of distance between you and other people if you must be around other people.
