COVID Guidelines You Should Remember!

We are all dealing with the day to day issues and safety concerns created by the COVID-19 virus. As time goes on, and it appears as if we may have reached the peak, sometimes there can be a degree of relaxation of the necessary guidelines and good practices to stop the spread. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) offers these general guidelines for preventing the spread of corona virus and protecting your health:

· Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
· You should especially wash your hands before eating, after using the restroom, sneezing, coughing or blowing your nose.
· If you can’t get to a sink, use a hand sanitizer that has at least 60% alcohol.
· Avoid touching your face-particularly your eyes, nose, and mouth.
· If you cough or sneeze, cover your face with your elbow or a tissue. If you use a tissue, throw it away promptly. Then go wash your hands.
· Avoid close contact with sick people. If you think someone has a respiratory infection, it’s safest to stay 6 feet away.
· Stay home when you are sick.
· Regularly disinfect commonly touched surfaces and items in your house, such as doorknobs and counter tops.
