Coronavirus Safety Tips

You may have noticed that words such as quarantine, hand washing, social distancing, hygiene, and disinfection are now the new normal in the aftermath of the pandemics of the highly infectious coronavirus disease, hygiene has become a necessity in modern life.

Coronavirus is spread by coming into contact with an infected person. This can happen at home while driving, or while on the go. To prevent getting the coronavirus or spreading it to others, we are required to cover our mouths and noses with face masks, wash our hands for twenty seconds with soap or hand sanitizers and be more mindful to disinfect regularly used surfaces. 

Maintaining good hygiene on a regular basis can help minimize the risk of contracting coronavirus from others or in public places. Follow these instructions to keep you and your loved ones healthy while also enhancing your overall health.

At-Home Safety

To reduce the spread of coronavirus, it is recommended in the first place that you remain at home as much as possible. Request that deliveries be left outside your house if you have the option.
