There are some basic interventions we can all do to mitigate our chances of contracting the Corona virus.
- Wash your hands frequently, do not touch your face until you wash your hands (Most people touch their faces 23 times a minute!)
- Sneeze or cough into your elbow or tissue. Discard the tissue into a receptacle.
- Stay Home If You Are Sick
You can prepare your home as well. Stock up on food supplies important to you such as frozen fruit, frozen vegetables, canned items, juices, tea, coffee, treats, pasta, rice, cereal, soup etc. Remember, you may not be able to go to the supermarket for several weeks! Also, do you have enough personal items, toothpaste, and shampoo?
Be sure you have adequate medications in your house/apartment so you do not have to go out if we find ourselves dealing with this virus. (4 weeks supply would be ideal). Also, if you use Tylenol, Ibuprofen, saline drops, etc, check your supply.
Check your basic items such as toilet paper, tissues, cleaning supplies (such as Lysol or Clorox wipes or spray).
