The COVID-19 outbreak has uprooted normal life for many people globally—including the Cache Valley area. With the health and safety of ourselves and loved ones at the forefront of our minds, it’s crucial to understand the necessary precautions and solutions to build a strong defense against the coronavirus.
A vaccine doesn’t yet exist for the coronavirus. This is especially concerning for older adults and individuals with underlying medical conditions since they’re at a higher risk for developing serious complications. However, the coronavirus has proven to affect people of all ages.
Additionally, even individuals who don’t notice any symptoms can be carriers who spread COVID-19 to others. This easily happens through close contact or droplets when they sneeze or cough.
Help Protect Your Home From The Coronavirus
Thankfully, there are guidelines and tools to assist us during these challenging times. The Center for Disease Control and Prevention emphasizes that the best way to prevent illness is to avoid exposure. This is important for yourself and the people around you.
The CDC also recommends washing your hands often for a minimum of 20 seconds—particularly after using the restroom, coughing, sneezing, or visiting a public area. If no soap and water is available, hand sanitizer containing at least 60% alcohol works well.
Also, be conscious to avoid touching your face. And if going to public places like the grocery store or pharmacy is absolutely necessary, wear a protective mask and keep a safe distance of at least 6 feet between yourself and others.
Disinfect Surfaces Frequently
Social distancing is also an important practice to follow. Since this means more time will be spent in the comfort of our homes, it’s important to make sure that the surfaces we touch often are sanitized.
The CDC recommends disinfecting surfaces like cell phones, doorknobs, light switches, toilet handles, computer keyboards, countertops, and faucets daily to stop the transfer and spread of the virus.
