Staying safe During Covid-19

One of the main concerns of society right now is the world pandemic Covid-19 and how to stay  safe. As life slowly goes back to normal since the pandemic hit and that means people are back out and about. Kids going to school and people returning to work. How are we going to stay safe now? We aren’t stuck indoors anymore and we come in contact with so many people each day.

Here are a couple tips to keep you and your family healthy!


Having good personal hygiene is essential to staying healthy. When coughing or sneezing make sure to either cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or your elbow. Another way to keep up on your hygiene habits is to wash your hands often.

The CDC recommends these 5 steps for washing your hands-

  1. Wet your hands with clean, running water (warm or cold), turn off the tap, and apply soap.
  2. Lather your hands by rubbing them together with the soap. Lather the backs of your hands, between your fingers, and under your nails.
  3. Scrub your hands for at least 20 seconds. Need a timer? Hum the “Happy Birthday” song from beginning to end twice.
  4. Rinse your hands well under clean, running water.
  5. Dry your hands using a clean towel or air dry them.

Face Coverings and Social Distancing

The Corona virus is mainly transferred from person to person. This means that it can be transmitted through people who you are in close contact with or through respiratory droplets. When a person sneezes or coughs these droplets will be sent throughout the air and possibly be inhaled into your lungs. The best ways to combat these issues is to wear a face covering and to social distance (stay six feet apart). Wearing a face mask and social distancing will greatly reduce your chances of catching Covid-19.

Keep tidy

Keeping your workspace neat and tidy will go along way in stopping the spread of Covid-19

It is suggested that you clean your workspace at least twice a day. This includes workstations, countertops, doorknobs, light switches, handels, restrooms, kitchens, break areas and all other frequently touched areas. Disinfecting these types of areas should significantly reduce the risk of catching any virus. Providing disposable wipes in these areas can be a good reminder for people to keep their areas clean.
