Read below our practical guide for staying safe and healthy at all times. This can apply at workplaces or at home. In the face of increasingly skyrocketing cases of COVID-19, many people feel anxious about getting infected. Covid-19 has become a highly contagious disease of its time. But there are concrete steps that can be taken in order to stay safe and healthy at all times.
We do not want to focus on the COVID-19 pandemic only, but also other contagious viruses known. Taking into consideration, the settlement set up that is very common in high density suburbs. You find more than 2 or 3 families sharing a space of living meant to be occupied by one family. Because it is what it is, you and your family can keep on staying safe and healthy at all times.
GUIDE TO STAYING SAFE AND HEALTHY AT ALL TIMES
WASH HANDS OFTEN
Even at school, teachers always encourage students to wash their hands after visiting the toilet. Make it a habit in your own home/space for everybody to always wash their hands so often. Instances like:
- When someone was not in the home. As they enter the home, they must make it a habit to wash their hands before they touch any surfaces. Your detergents or sanitizer liquids must be easily reachable and every process must be clearly simple.
- Wash hands before touching food.
Via sneezing, a virus can be spread through droplets to people nearby. Family members must find comfort to sneeze while covering their mouth. In the case that you sneezed alone, ensure that the hands are clean before shaking hands with anyone or touching any surfaces especially if you feel sick.
OWN CLEANING TOOLS
Families should have their own cleaning tools and ALWAYS CLEAN THEM AFTER USE. Practice putting wet mops or cloths in direct sun, as the sun heat plays a role in killing viruses/germs. If you have your own cleaning tools, managing their cleanliness makes it easier than when sharing.
Staying safe and healthy at all times should be taken seriously. Clean surfaces should be maintained to reduce unhygienic spaces and infectious viruses. Families must engage in deep cleaning routines.
BATHROOMS AND TOILETS
Bathrooms and toilets are the most contagious place in a home. So, if you are sharing make sure you are always cleaning before use and even after use for your OWN SAKE. Carry your bucket, if need to be, with a cloth, and cleaning detergent to the bathroom before you bath. Sometimes you need to wipe off the bath, or sometimes you need to scrub off a bit to remove invisible unhygienic particles.
In the case of a toilet seat, you will need to wipe off too with a wet cloth with detergent. Do not forget to always wash these things after use or put them in direct sun. If possible try to find many cleaning cloths for the family, and encourage everyone to exercise the hygienic act.
We hope the above guide will help you in staying safe and healthy at all times. We do not forget that we are still in the COVID-19 Pandemic, stay safe.
