Ways to Stay Healthy and Safe During COVID Times

For several months now, the world has been grappling with the novel coronavirus, also known as COVID-19. Numerous countries, states, cities, and communities have started reopening, albeit slowly.

According to public health officials, the best way to avoid getting infected is to stay protected and be health-conscious at all times.

Here are useful steps you can take to stay safe, as instructed by the CDC (Center for Disease Control and Prevention).

  • If you’ve been to a public place, wash your hands for a minimum of 20 seconds. This also applies if you blew your nose, coughed, or sneezed. If there’s no water and soap in the vicinity, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
  • Avoid touching your mouth, nose, and eyes with hands that aren’t washed.
  • Don’t go close to visibly sick people. Some people are asymptomatic, which means they can spread the virus even without showing any symptoms.
  • Avoid non-essential travel, and as much as you can, stay home.
  • By standing 6 feet apart, you can practice social distancing – this is about 2 arm’s length from others when out in public.  
  • At all times, keep in touch with friends and family via phone calls, video calls, social media, and text.
  • Use cloth face cover for your nose and mouth if you’re around people or if you’re in a public place such as the shopping mall.
  • Don’t use face covers for kids below the age of 2 or anyone that has trouble breathing – this also applies to people that are disabled or can’t remove their mask without help.
  • Also, don’t use a health worker’s facemask.
  • Surfaces that are often touched should be cleaned and disinfected regularly like tables, light switches, doorknobs, toilets, keyboards, phones, handles, sinks, and faucets.
