We all know that there’s no current vaccine to prevent coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). But there are ways on how to prevent getting infected.
In times like this, everyone should:
Wash your hands often
Often wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds especially if you’ve been in a public place, or after coughing or sneezing.
If soap and water are not available, use hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol. Cover all surfaces of your hand and rub together until dry.
Avoid touching sensitive parts of your face such as eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
Avoid Close Contact
Cover mouth and nose with a cloth face cover when around others
You could spread COVID-19 to others even you’re not showing any symptoms
Everyone should wear a cloth face cover when going out in public.
Cloth face cover is meant to protect other people in case you’re infected.
Keep about 6 feet between yourself and others.
Cover cough and sneezes
Always cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when coughing or sneezing or use the inside of your elbow.
Throw used tissues in the trash.
Wash your hands immediately for at least 20 seconds with soap and water.
Clean and disinfect
Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces daily. This includes doorknobs, tables, light switches, handles, desks, phones, keyboards, toilets, faucets, and sinks.
Always clean if the surfaces are dirty. Use soap or detergent and water prior to disinfection.
Use a household disinfectant. Most common EPA-registered household disinfectants will work.
Follow these safety precautions to avoid getting infected by this pandemic COVID-19 and feel free to share these instructions with others as well.
