Ways To Possibly Prevent , Cope, and Prepare For The Coronavirus
As the coronavirus spreads around the globe, there are steps you can take to protect yourself and your family.
Americans are friendly. We not only shake hands, we also hug. These are ways we can transmit the virus, For now try the "Elbow Bump " Or, you can use any type of no-touch salutation. Make one up and have fun with it. I don't suggest: thumbs in ears and wiggling fingers , or on nose. see item 2 below..
Here are five things to remember, per the CDC:
- Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth.
- Stay home when you are sick.
- Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
- Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe
Don's Panic - Prepare
This is not the time to panic, but it is a time to prepare — good old fashioned preparedness planning for your family,
Think about the threat of a possible outbreak in your community the way you'd think about a big snowstorm or a hurricane. If it never hits, great. But if it does, you'll be glad you prepared.
Don't hoard, but do stock your cupboards with some extra food and cleaning supplies. Each time you grocery shop, buy a few extra items. Shelf-stable foods such as beans and rice are good options. Also, utilize your freezer to preserve foods, everything from meats and vegetables to cooked grains and bread. Think about having enough on hand to last a few weeks.
Shelter in Place until 4/30/2020
The CDC updates its travel advisory information frequently. The federal government uses a four-level scale to rank risk. Level 1 equals the lowest risk, and Level 4, the highest. Know the Risk level in your area and proceed accordingly or maybe not go out at all if you are in a high risk area or are a High Risk Individual
I you do go out you should avoid contact with sick people and clean your hands often by washing with soap and water or using an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with 60%+ alcohol.
