TIP 1: Don’t Shake Hands
Tip number one is an important one. Many people might be conditioned to reach out and shake the hand of someone they first meet. However, given the recent chain of events, you want to be very cautious when doing so.
Instead of shaking hands, why not give a friendly wave. You can laugh it off and say something to the effect that you are trying to be careful after everything that has happened.
Additionally, there will be times when you may accidentally shake hands. Well, don’t be alarmed just be sure to do the following things:
- Don’t freak out. You won’t want to offend the person you are with by running off.
- Wash your hands as soon as you can
- Be careful and cautious not to touch your face or mouth.
TIP 2: Sanitize
Whether you are maintaining your home or workspace, be careful and keep it sanitized. As you know, COVID-19 lasts for days on certain surfaces. You will want to be vigilant to keep things clean and sanitary to prevent the spread of this horrible and deadly virus.
Some steps you can take to keep things clean are from doing a lot of cleaning yourself to hiring a cleaning service to help with some of the work. Be sure to do the following to properly maintain your home and workspace:
- Spray down and disinfect surfaces daily
- Clean your cell phone and computers
- Be sure to not accumulate junk as it could contain harmful contaminants
- Empty trash and sanitize trash can daily
- Don’t keep dirty dishes sitting in the sink
- Hire residential or commercial laundry services to help maintain cleanliness
Additionally, if you are a hoarder and have a messy home, to begin with, you will want to enlist the help of waste removal and dumpsters for rent service. This will help you remove items and get your home in order faster and more efficiently.
Whether or not we are in quarantine, you will want to continue to still maintain social distancing after quarantine is over . This is because of the simple fact that we really don’t know that much about this virus so until we do we should continue all forms of self-protection against it.
Some places it might be difficult to maintain a safe social distance:
- Grocery stores
- Inline at different places
- At concerts and sporting events
- Public transportation
Although many of these places are controlling the number of people who use their services to avoid clustering, you will have situations when it won’t be possible to maintain social distance. In such situations, you will want to be sure to wear a mask and gloves and be sure not to touch your face until you have properly washed yourself of all germs.
TIP 4: Continue to wear masks
Another great tip is to continue to wear masks. As you may have noticed, they are becoming quite the fashion statement and many clothing brands are offering cute ones that make a statement.
Wearing a mask will protect you from spreading the virus. As you know, this is an illness that is easily spread through respiratory droplets. Respiratory droplets can spread in the air. And they travel very far when a person coughs or sneezes. For this reason, it can be assumed that if you wear a mask you will reduce the spread of this horrible disease.
TIP 5: Do not attend big gatherings
Tip 5 is a really easy one that is kind of common sense. However, as people are getting more and more frustrated, many have been seen gathering in ways that are unsafe.
When the world opens up for business, as usual, be aware that this is not an invitation to go back to the way things were. Be careful and cautious about the things you choose to do. You should still think about staying a safe social distance away from your friends until we receive word that it is completely safe.
Some places to avoid:
- Grocery stores during busy hours (you can call and inquire about this)
- Laundromats during busy hours
- Sporting events
- Other places or events where people will be in close quarters
TIP 6: Don’t stress too much
While we want everyone to be safe and healthy, we don’t want you to walk around feeling afraid. Don’t think of every worst-case scenario. Just do your best on a daily basis to practice safe and healthy living moving forward. We’re sure you will be rewarded when you, your family and friends can finally be together again.
