COVID-19 and How to Protect Yourself

May 4, 2020

 

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

 

  • Keep distance between yourself and other people

    • Keep in mind that some people without symptoms may be able to spread the virus.

    • Keeping distance from others is especially important for those people who are at higher risk of getting very sick.

 

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.
