Sanitization and Best Practices During the COVID-19 Pandemic
Turn to reliable sources like the World Health Organization and Center for Disease Control. With a clearer understanding of the situation and some helpful coronavirus tips, you can help our community move towards a brighter future.
While there is no need to panic, it is important that you understand the very real dangers of COVID-19. The vast majority of those who contract the virus will recover safely. However, the disease can be fatal for vulnerable populations such as the elderly and those with pre-existing medical conditions. We are all responsible for keeping our community safe through social distancing and careful hygiene.
The CDC recommends washing hands frequently for 20 seconds at a time. It is also a good idea to regularly disinfect door knobs and surfaces in your home or business. Avoid sharing food, shaking hands, and touching your face. If anyone in your household is especially vulnerable to coronavirus, use extreme caution when interacting with them. Wash your hands before assisting elderly or ill family members, and give high-risk individuals a protected space within the home.
Recognizing the signs of a COVID-19 infection will help you prevent contamination in your community. If you experience shortness of breath, coughing, or fever, stay home and call your doctor. Only seek immediate medical attention if you or a loved one exhibits emergency warning signs, such as:
- Difficulty breathing
- New confusion or inability to arouse
- Pain or pressure in the chest
- Bluish face or lips
