To protect yourself from coronavirus. Most people are not sure how to protect themselves from the virus and often take incorrect precautions. For example, many people think that wearing a face mask will protect them from the virus. However, wearing a face mask is not effective in preventing the spread of coronavirus. In fact, most people who contract the virus do so by touching their nose or mouth after contact with an infected surface. The best way to protect yourself from coronavirus is to wash your hands often and avoid close contact with people who are sick.
It is also important to clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces daily, such as doorknobs, light switches, countertops, floors, and other high-touch surfaces.
Make sure you use a cleaning product that lists “EPA-approved” on the label. Additionally, avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
It is also important to practice social distancing.
Stay at least 6 feet away from other people and avoid large gatherings. If you need to go out, wear a cloth face covering that covers your nose and mouth when around others. Try to stay home as much as possible and limit in-person contact with people outside of your household.
Finally, make sure to stay informed about the most up-to-date information from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) website.
Keep yourself updated on any new developments in the coronavirus outbreak, and follow their advice to help protect you and others.
By following these tips, you can greatly reduce your risk of contracting the virus and help keep others safe. Stay vigilant and stay healthy!
